Looking Back: Fraser Water Tower
Posted August 5, 2014
The Fraser Water Tower was erected on 14 Mile Road, west of Utica Road, in 1948. It was used until 1964 when Fraser switched to Detroit water. The landmark was used by planes at nearby McKinley Airport. In 1973, it was sold to another community for a dollar and removed from the area.
