“a four-story Peach water tower!”

The Peachoid is a 135 feet tall water tower in Gaffney, South Carolina, U.S.A., that resembles a peach. The water tower holds one million U.S. gallons of water and is located off Peachoid Road by Interstate 85 between exits 90 and 92 (near the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway). Usually referred to by locals as "The Peach" and by passing motorists as "Mr. Peach" or "The Moon over Gaffney", the water tank is visible for several miles around these exits. An example of novelty architecture, the Peachoid is one of the most recognizable landmarks for travelers along I-85 between Charlotte, North Carolina, and Atlanta, Georgia.

Cool stop for a photo. Especially if you're a HOC fan. Definitely needed a paint job when we stopped by. Looked more like a lemon. 🍋

Stopped by to take a picture. Worth it to make a quick detour off the highway. It's easy to get on and back off.

The Peachoid is a feature on an episode of one of my favorite shows, "House of Cards". I've driven by countless times, but as I was moving from North Carolina to California, I decided to stop by the water tower and snap some photos. The landmark is really unique, and a signature of the state of South Carolina. Worth a stop. Incredibly easy to get to off the highway; just follow the signs when you exit I-85. Check out my photos and feel free to share your comments and experiences on my website!

It's a giant peach that looks like a butt. Great photo op. It's right next to Fatz.

Fun to pass by and make jokes about the giant peach. There is a Fatz restaurant nearby which is a good place to stop for a bite to eat.

This is a fun little roadside photo-op. Now that it's been on "House of Cards" it's also a cool filming location to stop at.
