Welcome, Minnesota: Drinking Fountains

Welcome to Welcome, which reads like a typographical error but is in fact true. It's a very small town in southern Minnesota.

Here's a look at the top tourist attraction of the village: the water fountain on Dugan St.

There are two fountains here. One is for horses, which is to the right of the center "pole." The other, on the left and slightly obscured, is for people. Nice of the builder to put stairs on the structure so that people of different heights can use it.

As the sign says, this was built in 1914. I wonder if there will be a big celebration in 2014. Welcome is just off Interstate 90 - go south toward town, and head a block west to reach the main street and the fountain.
