Notes
Survey number HABS WY-55-A
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-10).
Significance: The Rock Creek Water Tower is the best preserved of six extant structures of a late 19th-century town that flourished during the early days of the trans-continental railroad. Once a center for the migration and movement of goods into the northern portion of Wyoming and southern Montana, the town of Rock Creek relinquished its plat in 1904; today, it is a ghost town. The water tower is a fitting symbol of this once lively town and a reminder of an active and vigorous chapter in Wyoming's history.
