Address:
Onekama, MI, United States
Description:

ARCHITECT: Jonathan Moore & William Wilkinson
CONSTRUCTED: 1878


Placed on the State Register of Historic Places in 1986 and the National Historic Register in 1988, this unique fountain once graced the lawns of the former Manistee County Courthouse in the City of Manistee.

Shortly after the courthouse was complete in 1878, two identical fountains were placed on the grounds where they continued to add decorative flair until a fire destroyed the building in February 1950.

One fountain remained in the city and was later vandalized while the other was given for use in the Onekama Village Park where it remains today.
