The Greensburg Well is water well that was designed to provide water for the Santa Fe and Rock Island railroads. It is billed as the world's largest hand-dug well, at 109 feet deep and 32 feet in diameter.

The well had a visitor's center detailing the history of the well's construction. On May 4, 2007, a tornado hit Greensburg, destroying the center.
