National Humane Alliance Fountain
A Fountain Reborn
April 7, 2016 was a special day in Hot Springs, Arkansas as they resurrected their National Humane Alliance and rededicated it once again as a fully functional fountain. We've been following the story since first making contact with Jean Wallace, Parks & Trails Director for the City of Hot Springs back in August 2014 as you can see from the earlier story below. Here is the historical signage that is part of their beautiful new plaza:
To commemorate the special day, they distributed this commemorative bookmark:
You can see plenty of pictures from the Hot Springs re-dedication here. It's part of their Facebook page that also features a shorter video of their ceremony than this longer version of the complete ceremony:
Add Hot Springs, Arkansas to our list of National Humane Alliance Fountains thanks to a recent e-mail from Jean Wallace, Parks & Trails Director for the City of Hot Springs. She provided the elegant picture of the fountain from an earlier date. However, the fountain now sits disassembled in three large pieces with the spigots and plaque missing - that's the bad news. But the good news is that family which now possesses the fountain wants to gift it back to the city for restoration and placement in a public area.
We have shared our information with Hot Springs about John Lopez who cast the spigots for our restored fountain, and that may be of some use to them as they begin their restoration process. Interestingly, when restored the fountain will be placed on a section of their Greenway also currently being developed.
