The Old Fresno Water Tower is located at Fresno and O Streets in downtown Fresno. Built in the American Romanesque style, it stands 109 feet high, with a storage capacity of 250,000 gallons in its water tank. It is constructed of red brick, each layer smaller than the one below it, to produce a beehive effect. It also has a two-foot thick inner wall, and an outer wall of about fourteen inches. There is a passage, or hollow space, about three feet wide between the two walls. The outside of the tower has a painted surface over the brick construction.
