The Fresno Water Tower

Designed by architect George S. Mayer of Chicago, Illinois. It was completed in november 1894, replacing two wooden tanks erected on this site in 1887. The tower stands 100 feet high with a tank capacity of 250.000 gallons. This facility modeled after the Chicago water tower of 1867, was designed to house the Fresno City Library on the 2nd and 3rd levels. The brick walls are double construction, from one to two feet thick, with a space of three feet between them.

George M. Bowman
1891-1984
This water tower is dedicated to George M. Bowman in recognition for thirty-six years of dedicated service to the City of Fresno and for his accomplishments as a naval officer. He was the city´s first chief engineer and became general manager of the Water Department. He designed innovative electrical systems for street lighting, several well known public buildings and Chandler Air Field. Attaining the rank of rear admiral in the Navy, his career was distinguised by courage, leadership and diplomacy. It earned him the Silver Star, one of the nations´s highest medals for heroism awarded by the president of the United States. In conspicuous gallantry aboard the U.S.S. Saratoga carrier he restored power to the ship, saving the crew and vessel. The chinese government decorated him with the Cravate Blue of the Order for Meritorious Participation in the Sino-American cooperative organization. For his outstanding contributions to the armed forces, the veterans and reservists he recieved the governor Earl Warren Trophy. We remember a man of valor who worked toward progress, world peace, understanding and the well-being of others.
