“Yelm Preserves the Past While Looking to the Future”
“Through two new projects funded by the Washington State Legislature, the City of Yelm is simultaneously preserving the past while looking to the future. The iconic 125-foot water tower that has loomed over the town since the 1940s is being converted into an art piece, while a new building, to be constructed almost directly under the tower will house a satellite branch of South Puget Sound Community College and a business incubator space.
“Representative J.T. Wilcox was one of those legislators who secured funds for both projects,” by Heidi Smith, Thurston Talk.
