The Italianate octagonal Roland Water Tower stands on Roland Avenue near the boundary of Plat 2. It was built by the City of Baltimore in 1904-05. The original water supply was provided by the Roland Park Water Company through a system of artesian wells and reservoirs. Another, 70-foot-high water tower was located at the intersection of Long and Tower lanes in Plat 2, and included an observation platform. Water was subsequently provided by the city a few years after Roland Park was annexed by Baltimore City in 1918.
Plans to preserve the structure and identify a new use are underway.
