Local Landmarks: The Ripon Water Tower (San Joaquin County)

I snapped the photo below the other day when going to Modesto for an inspection (yes, while driving – kids, don’t try that at home). This is the Ripon Water Tower and it’s an easy landmark to spot because of its large size and location right next to Highway 99. Ripon is located South of Stockton and just North of the Stanislaus County line (click HERE for map).


I am always intrigued by landmarks, design, bridges, houses, and other structures. What landmarks exist in your community? What do you think locals as well as passersby notice in your area when driving along the freeway or one of the main streets?
