The Campbell Water Tower stands above the downtown and proclaims the city's name.
Located off Orchard City Drive in , the water tower was part of the first utility company in the city. In 1898, the company had 82 customers, with the highest bill reported at a whopping $3—with the lowest at 25 cents.
The tower has withstood earthquakes, floods and storms, with numerous replacements of bits and pieces, but in November 2009, it was completely restored by the County of Santa Clara Historical Heritage Commission and the Parks and Recreation Department.
