Florence Y’all Water Tower

500 Mall Circle Rd, Florence, Kentucky 41042

  • Three words to describe Florence Y’all Water Tower: Iconic, Controversial, Attraction
  • Why are you nominating Florence Y’all Water Tower: The Florence Water Tower is a legend in Kentucky Interstate Lore. Initially painted with the name of the Florence Mall (where it stands), it had to change because it predated the mall and thus fell outside advertising law. In a rush to change it, the developers temporarily changed it to say “Florence Y’all” … this was in the mid-1970s, and it’s remained this way ever since. It’s an absolute icon, and serves as a welcome to the South for everyone arriving from the north in Ohio.
  • Anything else to share? I am not kidding, this thing is such an icon that it has a whole baseball team named after it, the Florence Y’alls. (https://twitter.com/florence_yalls) Bet that’s the only one of those on this list.
