The Manistique Watertower, a 200,000 gallon capacity water tower, is a Roman Revival-style utilitarian structure.
The 200' octagonal brick tower has been designated of outstanding historical and architectural
significance to the United States. Built in 1922 at a cost of $62,450, the tower commemorates
the birth of Manistique's municipal water works. The water tower site at the west bank of the
Manistique River on Deer Street in Manistique, is also the site of the "Log House" and
"Putnam House" museum buildings. The water tower and museum buildings are maintained and
