In 2014, Luke Robinson of Robinson Iron noticed that the community of Grand Island, NE once had a beautiful cast iron fountain near its town’s center via an internet search. The fountain- like many of its type- had been lost or removed many years ago.
So Luke contacted the people of Grand Island to explore re-cereating this historic piece. As luck would have, Robinson Iron was already working on a different fountain project in Crete, NE! Therefore, the Grand Island folks were able to check out a first-hand account of the company’s quality.
After several years of drawings and fund raining, Grand Island finally has its fountain back! The one-of-a-kind fountain was delivered this week and it now resides at the Stuhr Museum in Grand Island until the pool is ready to house it.
