Preserving the WV Northern Railroad Water Tower

The West Virginia Northern Railroad Water Tower was added to the West Virginia Endangered Properties List in 2012.  It is a unique structure to the list – and the only water tower, so far.

The Friends of the Cheat are working to revitalize the entire brownfield area, including the water tower, as a rail trail.  The goal is to preserve the water tower and have it serve as the trail head.

Learn more about the project and about what makes this water tower historic in the WBOY Channel 12 video.
