Water Wheel - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

Yesterday I showed a picture of the Bethlehem History Park

in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. This water wheel is also from that park and is one of the earliest if not the earliest public waterworks in what would become the United States. The water wheel turned a pump to pump river water up to a central watertower in the town above.
