Relatively flat land comprises most of the landscape surrounding the water tower, providing a 360-degree view of the horizon. Foothills surround the perimeter of the city, visible in the distance. Farms tend to take up most of the flatland, while cattle ranchers use the hills. Besides the four main crops, Winters also has a wide variety of orchards, many of which are owned by Mariani Fruits and Nuts. Decades prior, this agricultural prosperity was shared via the railroad which ran directly through Winters, carrying its harvest bounty across the country.

Becky Harris added this to 10 Wonderful Farmhouses
When architect Lewis Butler's farming parents tapped him to design a farmhouse for them, they didn't have a clear picture of what they wanted, but they knew that it had to be simple, and it had to have a water tower. One can see why; this tower makes for a striking elevation and provides big views out across the rural landscape. See the rest of this unique home
John Hill added this to Contemporary Cabins in the Woods
This last project, the Yolo County Cabin in upstate California by Butler Armsden Architects, appears very un-cabin-like at first. Sited within a patch of trees on 400 acres of farmland, from a distance it looks like a lighthouse transplanted from elsewhere.
