This water tower belonged to the Coöperatieve Stoomzuivelfabriek Sint Isidorus (Co-operative Steam Dairy Factory Saint Isidore), which was built in 1916.

The water tower originally had three floors (ground floor, first floor and second floor) and a hipped roof. This roof was removed around 1930, after which a fourth floor with a concrete reservoir was added. The water tower was then fitted with a flat roof.

In 1977, the factory buildings were bought by the owners of a local do-it-yourself company. They restored the old buildings in the following years. In 2001, they fitted the water tower with a new hipped roof, which is a replica of the original roof.

This water tower/reservoir building was designed by Dutch railway architect G.W. van Heukelom. It was built circa 1914 and had three rectangular iron reservoirs, each with a capacity of approximately 70.000 liters. The building was blown up by German soldiers on 17 September 1944. (An almost identical water tower/reservoir building, also designed by G.W. van Heukelom, was built in Maastricht.)

The water tower in Baarn belongs to Paleis Soestdijk (Soestdijk Palace) and it may be the oldest water tower in The Netherlands. It was built in 1678-1683 and provided the fountains in the park with water. The pumps in the water tower were driven by a small windmill on the roof and a horse mill under the reservoir. The water tower in Baarn as it looked like in 1695.   /Wilco Krul

The water tower is from 1910 and is built in three floors from the beginning. The water tower served a milkery and all houses on the farm Bankebergs Gård. It has been used as a water tower until 1948, when the milkery in Bankeberg was closed down.

The water tank is on the third floor and cannot be removed. In the water tower is there now a flat with three rooms, kitchen and toilet/shower.

An old gentleman lives there since about 30 years. The two chimneys are still used, even if we now have central heating.

My family who owns Bankebergs Gård.
