Built in 1883 with 400,000 bricks, the tower originally supported a big tank filled with water used to douse downtown fires. When Columbus got a water system, the tank was taken off the top of the tower and the town tried to blow up the tower with dynamite. Its three-foot-thick walls wouldn't budge. Now looking like a wayward tower from a medieval castle, it was turned over to The United Daughters of the Confederacy, which used it as their meeting place. In 1962 -- during the battle years of segregation -- it officially became the Columbus Confederate Memorial Museum. One exhibit of note: a three-barrel shotgun.

Stopped by here in August 2017 and sadly we hadn't called in advance as we should have. So we was not able to go inside. Here are some pictures from the outside.
