Buhl Water Company

On the highest promontory in Northern Minnesota at the end of the Laurentian Divide sits the village of Buhl. Though known as the heart and hub of the iron mining industry on the Iron Range, Buhl’s notoriety really comes from its excellent water supply.

In the 1920’s travelers on the Iron Range would stop at Buhl for a refreshing drink of this water. To attract more tourists, the city council voted to paint a sign on the water tower that boasted, “The Finest Water on the Range”. But some of the village fathers decided that was too modest, and had “Range” replaced by “America”. The tower has read “The Finest Water in America” ever since.
