Fountain to get another facelift
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Just four years after its last renovation, the Civil War fountain on Memorial Square will be dismantled next week and hauled away for repairs.
This time it was not the ravages of time, but bad drivers that a Lancaster, Pa., foundry will be fixing. Borough Secretary Tanya Mickey said Wednesday a pair of state grants and money left over from the last restoration will be used to do about $75,000 in repairs.
"We no sooner restored it than we had a couple of accidents," said Raymond H. Depuy of Franklin County Heritage Inc., the group that helped raise the money for the restoration that began in the fall of 1993.
