Another Iconic Minnesota Water Tower
Minnesota is blessed with many interesting and iconic water towers. In previous posts to this blog we have featured the Happy Face in Freeport, Paul Bunyan's Bobber and Paul Bunyan's Turkey Baster. Today we're writing about the bright blue tower in the trees at the Breezy Point Resort on Pelican Lake. Breezy Point Resort is built on land acquired in 1921 by millionaire publicist Wilfred Hamilton Fawcett (“Captain Billy Fawcett”), the flamboyant and charismatic publishing giant and owner of Fawcett Publishing, creator of the famous Whiz Bang Magazine. The water tower isn't nearly that old but is a great landmark that is visible on the lake for a long distance.
