Vera Well No.1 by Donald Sewell in Landmarks
Vera Water & Power Co's Well Number 1.
Workers sank the well in 1906 as part of a land development plan to supply irrigation to emerging farms. The hand-dug well is a well-loved landmark because of the stone castle pump house that was built out of native river rock to protect the well.
At 156 feet deep, the 8-foot-diameter well reaches the plentiful Spokane aquifer at between 115 and 125 feet depending on the time of year.
