The Peachoid

294 Peachoid Road
Gaffney, SC 29340
The iconic One Million Gallon water tank has long been Gaffney's claim to fame. Designed in the shape of a peach, it was built by the Gaffney Board of Public Works in 1981. Constructed by the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company, the Peachoid was later painted by artist Peter Freudenburg, who was tasked with painting the tank in colors matching the types of peaches grown in the area. Today, the Peachoid stands guard over interstate 85 near Gaffney, capturing the attention of hundreds of thousands of travelers who drive past each year.
