I saw it on the House of Cards and figured it was probably real. I can't say that I hunted it down. We pulled off of the interstate to go to our B&B and sure enough there it was in all of its glory. Amazing. It is very well maintained. Quite a landmark and now a TV star!!

I don't know why this is even on here, All you have to do is drive down I85 and see it, or you could take a back road and get up close. It is simply a water tower in the form of a giant peach. It's pretty, but I wouldn't spend thousands of dollars just to fly here to see... More

you are traveling on I85 not far from North Carolina line and you see what appears to be a Giant pink Butt in the sky. You are saying "What is this?" Well, it is the peachoid water tank. You will always remember seeing it!

Cool peach shaped water tower. Can be viewed from I-85. Can't miss it if you are traveling on I-85. Looks good.

Water towers are generally not very attractive. This one is most unusual as it looks like a giant peach,and depending on your vantage point,to some a butt crack. There's not much to do here but appreciate the craftsmanship and maintenance. It's a photo opportunity when captured from an angle that doesn't include the neighboring Fatz restaurant sign, which in my... More

Took a picture of this for a friend in London who had seen it on a BBC show. She was impressed that we knew where it was!

A standing SC joke for its humanoid shape. It does draw attention to the importance of fresh peaches to the local economy.
