Louisville Water Company Pumping Station, KY: Constructed between 1858 and 1860 in the Classical Revival style, this pumping station represents nineteenth century efforts to include symbolic and monumental functions in industrial architecture. The engine room is in the form of a temple, and the 169'-tall standpipe tower imitates triumphal Roman columns. Around the base of the standpipe is a circular colonnade embellished with ten statues, including nine figures from mythology and an Indian with his dog. The property is maintained by the Louisville Water Company.
