Historic water tower has a new home

The City and County of Denver through the Mayor’s Office of the National Western Center, recently reconstructed the historic Armour water tower in its permanent home at the heart of the future National Western Center campus. Just a few hundred yards away from its original location, the water tower will serve as a beacon for visitors on the future campus at the intersection of the stockyards and Stockyards Event Center.

Crews carefully deconstructed the water tower earlier this year to allow for continued horizontal infrastructure construction (utilities, roadways, etc.). While in storage, the 80-foot tower was cleaned of graffiti and painted to protect its exterior for many years to come. The original Armour logo was re-painted on the face of the tower, honoring the heritage of the former Denver Union Stockyards and the large packing houses that used to operate nearby: Swift, Wilson, Cudahy and Armour.
