The first phase of restoration on the City of Cheyenne’s historic water fountain, located at Cheyenne Regional Airport, is now complete. The waterproofing on the upper bowl and the tile on the lower bowl of the fountain were replaced after spalling occurred due to exposure to many Cheyenne winters. After years of sitting idle, the city plans to revive use of the fountain once again.
Cheyenne’s historic preservation board has been working to raise funds to continue onto the next phase of restoration in the near future. Although the fountain is operational, the terra cotta will need to be restored before putting it back into regular service.
