Abstract

Designed by Denman Fink and built in 1924 as one of a pair of water towers designed to resemble lighthouses; this tower located at Indian Mound Trail was severely damaged in the hurricane of 1926 and was not rebuilt. The other one, the Alhambra tower, was used until 1931 when Coral Gables began getting its water from the City of Miami. The Alhambra water tower has been fully restored and is maintained by the City of Coral Gables.
