History in Downtown Campbell
In 1892, Benjamin Campbell formed the Campbell Water Company, Campbell's first utility company,
and the 130 foot water tower from the Pittsburgh-Des Moines Steel Company,
has become a symbol for Historic Downtown Campbell, as it is visible throughout the area.
The adjacent Water Tower Plaza complex, built in the late 1800's and occupied by Hyde Cannery/
Sunsweet Corporation represented one of the largest fruit drying and packaging facilities in the world.
These two landmarks are just a start of Campbell's history. You can explore over two dozen historical
