For the past several years, the North Park Historical Society has been interested in securing designation of the North Park Water Tower as an historic place. On May 1, 2013 the State Historical Resources Commission unanimously approved listing the Water Tower and the surrounding “district” of past and present water supply facilities as a significant California Resource. The State also recommended that the water tower and district be listred on the National Register of Historic Places.
