Louisville Water Tower Named 1 of 10 Buildings that Changed Louisville
Friday November 22, 2013
The Kentucky Chapter for the American Institute for Architects along with Kentucky Educational Television named the Louisville Water Tower and Pumping Station No. 1 as one of the “Ten Buildings that Changed Louisville.” It’s a nice honor for Louisville Water and a tribute to our efforts to preserve these National Historic Landmarks.
The public nominated 70 buildings this past summer and Louisville Water actually had two nominations - The Water Tower and Pumping Station and the Crescent Hill Reservoir/Gatehouse. A group of local architects, historians and citizens selected the top 10 and the winners were announced on November 21.
The Top 10 also includes: Actors Theatre, American Life & Accident Insurance Building, Louisville Ballet building, Bowman Field Terminal, Humana Building, Levy Brothers’ Building, Seelbach Hotel, 21c Museum/Hotel and the U.S. Marine Hospital.
On Saturday, November 23, KET will air a special segment highlighting the Top 10 Buildings on its Louisville Life program at 7pm on KET.
