The medieval tower just south of I-394 looks like it belongs on the set of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, not perched alone in one of the City of Lakes' poshest neighborhoods. One hundred and six years young, the octagonal brick and stone Kenwood Water Tower rises 110 feet. The fortress, which originally was constructed to alleviate water pressure and storage problems for nearby Lowry Hill residents, hasn't been tasked with actual work as a holding tank since 1954. Yet what it lacks in utility, the tower makes up for in handsomeness. It's kind of eerie, kind of bad ass, and sort of romantic too. It's an architectural curiosity that's totally out of place, yet exactly where it was always meant to be as a reminder to us all that this is home.
