The Leaning Tower of Britten

Thursday, 7 March 2019

Brilliant.

Ralph Britten purchased a water tower from the nearby town of Lefors, Texas, transported it to Groom. The tower was intended to supply Britten’s remote truck stop /restaurant and tourist information center with water, but he found a cheaper supply and installed the empty tower as an advertisement on Route 66.

Britten’s business burned to the ground, but his water tower still stands.
