Colonel Ward Pump Station

In the early 1900s colossal five story high, 60-foot, steam pumps delivered water to the city of Buffalo. They were eventually replaced by smaller, but very powerful electric pumps, which are still in use.

These mammoth steam pumps still sit along side their smaller replacements, and have attracted attention from pump and steam engine enthusiasts.

Below are thumbnail pictures of these steam pumps. Click on them to enlarge.
