Andersonville’s Beloved Swedish Flag Water Tower Returns

After a three year hiatus, the iconic Blue and Yellow Swedish flag water tower above the Swedish American Museum in Andersonville is being reinstalled. The new fiberglass tower will be painted to mimic the original wooden water tower. First installed in 1927, the wooden water tower was removed in 2014 due to damage from heavy snows. The Swedish American Museum engaged in a campaign to raise the funds to install a new replacement water tower. To date, the campaign has raised over $125,000.
