Notes
Survey number HABS OR-152
Significance: The Union Creek Water Tower is identified as a primary property in the Union Creek Historic District (listed on the National Register of Historic Places); the District is significant as an intact concentration of historically-related structures and features associated with early twentieth century recreation use and Forest Service administration, a complex which utilizes a unifying architectural theme of "Rustic"-style construction dating to the 1920s-1930s. The Water Tower was built in the same style as other Resort buildings, and was one of the tallest domestic water towers in Jackson County.
