Brainerd's famous concrete water tower at sunset.  The location is Sixth and Washington Streets.  Pipestone, Minnesota, has the only other one like it.  Both are on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and are icons of the cities they represent.  The one in Brainerd has often been referred to as Paul Bunyan's Flashlight.  It was built by continuously pouring concrete until rising to a height of 141 feet in 1918.  The Crow Wing County Historical Society has more details information.
