In 1972, this water tower was erected and the words "Home of Woody Guthrie" were painted on the side.

The move was vehemently opposed by the Okemah City Council and the local Chamber of Commerce for fear that America's most famous folk singer was purportedly a communist.

The other water towers read "Hot" and "Cold".
