The Leaning Tower of Groom

Ralph Britten constructed this water tower to lean in order to catch the eyes of the tourists who would stop and ask questions.

While they were there, they’d spend money at the truck stop and restaurant nearby. Unfortunately, the restaurant burned a few years ago, but the tower remains as a great photo opportunity. As for why the tower says “Britten” instead of “Groom”, the Brittens are a large family that has lived in the area for a long time.
