Inscription.  

At the first City Council meeting he presided over, Mayor Koebig allocated resources to save the fountain which was threatened with demolition. The fountain was repaired again in the 1990s and was fully restored and rededicated in 2007. The fountain was built c. 1935 as a depression-era federal Works Project Administration project in an Art Moderne architectural style. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Prior to 1935, a stone fountain was located in the same place, along with a bandstand and early water tower. The original town site surveyed in 1838 reserved two adjacent blocks in the town center for public use which served the community as the Courthouse Square and what was then known as Park Square or City Park.
