Not Just a Fountain

The Veterans Memorial Fountain in Fort Steuben Park is more than just a decorative feature. It is a symbol of our community's gratitude and respect for those who have served our country. It is also a place where people gather for photos and special events, to cool off on hot days, to enjoy a picnic lunch, and to simply enjoy the sounds of the water and feel the refreshing spray.

However, the fountain is in need of repair. It is 20 years old and has suffered from wear and tear and weather damage. The water pump is malfunctioning, the lights are dimming, and the concrete is cracking. Many of the parts have been repaired and replaced several times. If we don't act soon, the fountain may stop working altogether.

That's why we are launching a fundraising campaign to restore the fountain to its former glory. We need your help to raise $50,000 by the end of the year. With your generous donations, we can hire a professional contractor to fix the fountain's problems and make it look new again.

Although Fort Steuben Park welcomes everyone to enjoy the fountain and green space, we are not a city or state facility but a private non-profit dependent on the support of our members, organizations, businesses, and the general public. We are grateful to our local NBC affiliate, WTOV9, for spearheading this campaign and getting the word out.

Please join us in this effort to preserve our fountain and honor our veterans. You can donate online at the dontate button at or mail a check to Save Our Fountain, 120 S. 3rd Street, Steubenville, OH 43952. Every dollar counts and every donation is appreciated.

Together, we can save our fountain and keep it flowing for generations to come.
