Westminster Water Tower — Oconee County, South Carolina
SC Picture Project | Oconee County | Westminster Water Tower
Westminster is a small, vibrant community in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Oconee County. The area is home to many apple orchards, and the town has celebrated this great heritage each fall with their local Apple Festival.
The town’s apple heritage is also celebrated on their water tower which is pictured here. In recent years, such towers have all too often been replaced with large concrete structures – which are perhaps more efficient – but lacking in the charm of these older structures.
