Utilitarian But Neat Pipe Fountain

The Big Spring underneath the Cotter Bridge was discovered in the late 1800's. Since that time, it has been a favorite place to cool off in the humid summer heat. Long ago a rope was tied to one of the large trees beside the spring and generations of young people have used that rope to swing out over the pool created by the spring and drop into the refreshing water. (Presumably, the rope now used is not the original one since rope does rot and need to be replaced.) In the latter part of the twentieth century a park was established around the Big Spring, providing many of the activities seen in other municipal parks. This fountain is a modern addition for dispersing come of the spring's flow.
