The Clanton Peach - Clanton, AL

The Clanton Peach - Clanton, AL

Located just off the Interstate between Montgomery and Birmingham is this impressive water tower shaped like a peach. With a height of 120 feet and a capacity of 500,000 gallons, the tower was built by the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company in 1992. It could hold a lot more gallons if it weren't for the peach pit on the inside (not really).

It seems like most of the peach farms in Alabama were located in this area here in Chilton County. While traveling I-65, there were numerous billboards for several different farmers markets, as well as other businesses that were "just past the big peach."
