50 miles from Alton, Kansas via US-24 E, US-281 S, and KS 18 W you’ll find the tiny town of Paradise. [Russell County]

Standing along the highway is a  17-foot diameter rusticated limestone tower that rises 35 feet in the air. The tower resembles a farmstead silo but actually holds up to 58,000 gallons of water. The Paradise water tower was constructed in 1938 as part of a water works construction project and features a double door entrance with an art deco inspired limestone surrounding.

This water tower was listed on the National Register of Historic places in 2007.
