The Tank House was built from an original water tank house on one of the town’s oldest properties. Before modern conveniences of electricity and public water mains, residents used this tank house to supply and store their own water for their house and garden. When it was used for its primary purpose, this tank house functioned using a windmill and a hand-dug well. The windmill pumped the well water into the tank at the top of the tank house, so the water could run down to the house and garden.
