Bell Street Water Tower to be Dismantled

Mary Katherine Rooker, WSMV TV, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, January 25, 2010

The water tower on East Bell Street has been in operation since 1930.

The water tower on Bell Street in Murfreesboro has stood for 80 years. It’s the city’s oldest standing water tower.  But the 137-foot-tall landmark is about to be dismantled.

Water and sewer officials are tearing it down because it’s too expensive to maintain.

The city no longer uses the water tower.  It was taken out of service seven years ago.
