Apple Water Tower, Jackson, Ohio – Weirdness Wednesdays May 22, 2019

I mentioned in a recent post about how some of my ancestors had a connection to OhioPreserving Pennsylvania’s oldest historical documents – witf. I decided to check Roadside America to see if there were any unusual items listed for Ohio. Imagine my surprise when I came across the Apple Water Tower, Jackson, Ohio: https://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/28476. I have previously mentioned other unusual water towers in other posts over the last few months. Not as weird as it might be, but why it was done was a bit out of the ordinary.
