Building: Raleigh Water Tower -- American Institute of Architects Tower (Raleigh, Wake County, North Carolina)
- North Carolina
- Historical note:
- The tower was built to support a tank for the city's new water system. The tank was removed and the building abandoned in 1924. William Dietricks rescued the structure in 1938, using it first as office buildings and later converting it to serve as the North Carolina chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
