    Hewins, Kansas. This is how it was explained to me: "It is a water tank fed from a cistern with a belt driven pump at ground level. That's how they had running water in the store that used to be there. Gravity feed."

    Actually, it could aswell be appartements or perhaps a family home.
    Sometimes older buildings aren't of any use considering there purpose.
    A lighthouse, a church, a watertower, you name it.
    They might get used (indeed) as offices, a place to live, for conferences, or to rent for a holiday.

    We have a real special but extremely basic house nearby, it's in Schoorldam.
    Check https://www.vakantiehuisnu.nl/96088.htm to check it out.
