Ladd Water Tower

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 8 May 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Water tower spotted in Ladd, Illinois. This was a community we were just passing through until we spotted a restaurant called Rip's Tavern that we decided to catch dinner at. To our surprise, it was a restaurant with a four-item menu and no silverware. But the food was absolutely delish and wait staff was very friendly.

The community has 1,255 residents and is only 1.18 square miles in size.
