May 24, 2023

Traveling to Whitewater, WI and want a collection of fun selfies at iconic locations across the city? We have you covered with these top 7 spots full of color, history, and adventure!


Prairie Tillers Mural

121 W Center St.

This brightly colored mural not only tells the story of Whitewater, it also celebrates our city founders. Depicted throughout: Kettle Moraine’s glacial geography of rolling hills and prairies as well as Whitewater’s close proximity to various bodies of water. After snapping your selfie, pop into Studio 84 and peruse local artwork and pottery!


Birge Fountain

402 W Main St.

If the water bearer atop the fountain isn’t enough to draw you in, come for the mythical cherubs riding fish below her. This Neoclassical style fountain stands 17 1/2' tall and sits on the historic grounds of the original Little Brick School, now the Cultural Arts Center. After photographing your cute mug spouting water like the fish, head inside to check out the current exhibit!


"Witches Tower"

504 W Starin Rd (at the very top of the hill!)

Are the spikes pointing inward to keep something in? This is the ongoing question at Whitewater’s most iconic spot. It’s spookiest at night, so take that shadow-faced selfie. The shadowier, the creepier!


Historic Train Depot

301 W Whitewater St.

A beautiful example of a small town railroad depot, this High Victorian Gothic style building was built in 1890-91. Now the home of the Whitewater Historical Society local history museum, the Historic Train Depot, with its gorgeous fountain outside, makes for an awesome backdrop to your selfie!


Cravath Lakefront Tunnel

Entrance to Cravath Lakefront Park off of E Main St. - Park in Second Salem’s parking lot

This selfie spot makes the list because who doesn’t love a little tunnel underneath railroad tracks? Position yourself with Cravath Lake in the background and you have yourself a uniquely Whitewater shot. Then head into Second Salem Brewing Co. for a burger and in-house craft brew.


Giant Warhawk Purple Adirondack Chair

930 W Main St.

Plop into UW-Whitewater’s massive Warhawk purple Adirondack for your next selfie! Built by master craftsman, Rod Berg, this chair lives in the Campus Memory Garden. Take a few moments to honor loved ones who’ve passed. Then take a stroll through campus and admire the beautiful flowers.


Whitewater Flowing Well

8267 Clover Valley Rd

Everyone’s favorite watering hole, the Whitewater Flowing Well is a selfie spot complete with a cool, refreshing drink of water. Hand-dug in 1895 to 55’, the well flows year round to this day. After snapping your pic, hit the Ice Age Trail-Whitewater Lake Segment for an afternoon hike!


Enjoy these iconic locations! Now get to cheesin’!
