The Weyburn Water Tower at sunrise a
few days ago. This historical landmark
sits high on Signal Hill and can be seen
for miles in all directions. When I last
saw it about ten years ago it was looking
unloved but on this visit I was pleased to
see it boasting a brand new coat of paint.
There are three other "lighthouse"
shaped water towers in Saskatchewan,
at Kamsack, Humboldt and Kerrobert,
but I believe the one in Weyburn is the
oldest being built in 1909.
Signal Hill was a native settlement
where the smoke signals created there
could be seen a great distance.
W.O. Mitchell was born in Weyburn
and Tommy Douglas called it home.
