Significance: Stockbridge's 1912 vintage water tower is an early example of an elliptical bottom tank patented in 1907 by the Chicago Bridge & Iron Works, probably the leading producer of such structures in the nation. Early twentieth-century water tower structures having such elliptical-bottom tanks appear to be less common than hemispherical bottomed tanks.
