  • A quaint museum housed with the ground floor of a beautiful water tower, as the main water source for a New Deal Roosevelt project, and...one can ascend the spiral staircase (with landings) to the top...  more »
  • The facility is really pretty cool. The story behind the building and the area is interesting. For only a few bucks, its worth the time to stop.  more »

  • 4$ entry fee, the video taught me a lot but was really boring. It was kinda cool, they do have a little gift shop. Going to the top has a good view.
  • This museum is definitely a must-see. It depicts some of the local history very well. There are 90(ish) stairs that lead up to the very top of the tower, which gives you a birds eye view and on a clear day you can see for miles. The museum gives you information on the era of the "New Deal," which is when the homesteads were first created in Cumberland County. When you finish your visit here you should go to the Homestead house museum about a mile or two away.
