Water tower
  • 1 Florence Y'All Water Tower (off I-71/I75 near Florence Mall). If you're heading south from Ohio, this is a surefire sign that you aren't in the Union anymore. Originally a giant advertisement for the nearby Florence Mall, this landmark was accidentally created when developers realized that it was illegal to advertise the mall on the water tower. To save money they turned the M to a Y and the rest is history. Florence Y'all Water Tower (Q5460821) on Wikidata Florence Y'all Water Tower on Wikipedia
