Alliance Central Park Fountain

Alliance, NE

The Alliance Central Park Fountain was constructed in 1935 by Works Progress Administration and city parks department crews. It is historically significant as an electrically powered, colored-light fountain. The fountain, first activated during Alliance’s “Stampede Days” celebration in June 1935, was in continuous use during the summer months until the mid-1970s when it fell into disrepair. In 1989, the fountain was restored to the historic appearance of the octagonal concrete structure.
