Serving as a campus beacon for more than a century, the water tower is considered one of the most iconic symbols of UC Davis.
The UC Davis Library exhibit, “Water Tower: The History of a Campus Icon,” explores the history, purpose and significance of today’s water towers (yes, there are two!) and their predecessors. Drawing from historical photographs and rare items in the UC Davis Library Archives and Special Collections, the exhibit is located in the Shields Library lobby, and runs through Picnic Day.
