Description

The Thomas Hill Standpipe in Bangor, Maine was built in 1897 and is on the National Register of Historic Places and an American Water Works Landmark. The steel inner tank holds 1.75 million gallons and is 75 feet in diameter and 50 feet tall. The tank is surrounded by a wooden structure that is 85 feet in diameter and 110 feet tall covered with 220,000 cedar shingles. The stone foundation is 9 feet tall and 3-1/2 feet thick. There is a 12 foot wide promenade deck that can be reached by a 100 step winding staircase that is open to the public a few times a year. Crowing the top of the standpipe are 192 banisters that are lit up at night. The standpipe is still in service today for downtown Bangor.
