York Water Company Order A Print

Designed in the Neoclassical Style, the York Water Company Building was constructed in 1929. This building features a beautiful ceiling, restored in 1995 to its original glory. The exterior colossal columns feature Egyptian Revival influences, though the remainder of the front elevation is Neoclassical. Features include a highly decorative tympanum, broken pediment over the main entrance, pediment with dentil course, arched windows, and rosettes on the frieze. The York Water Company dates from 1816, and was originally formed in part to help provide a water source for fighting fires.
