It's along the I-85 highway and sort of cool looking but I've seen other water towers that are as or more unique.

The detail and paint job make this look absolutely like a giant peach. We learned SC produces 3x as many peaches as Georgia ("the peach state"). Great landmark!

My 2 sons and I were traveling to Gaffney for the weekend. As we were driving on 85, we saw the Peachoid. I was more excited than my sons. The gates are open from 8-5.

We saw this on the way to Cherokee Speedway to see the Lucas Oil Late Model race. Looks neat from the highway and the kids thought it was awesome. It's really nice looking at night with the lights shining on it.

Water tower is easily visible from the highway. First time I passed I didn't know what it was. Took a local to point it out and then I got it. I'm sure it is a mark of local pride and it is interesting art, but...More
