Fountain Renovation


Ashtabeautiful's fountain is back!  The fountain was donated to the City of Ashtabula by Mr. Topky.  Larry Fargo, Fargo Machine Co., is leading a group to restore the fountain back to its original glory.  The restoration project is being spearheaded by the Ashtabula Downtown Development Association (ADDA) and is the fiscal agent responsible for collecting the donations.  It is the goal of ADDA to include as many people as possible to be involved with this project, demonstrating there is a strong showing of community pride and co-operation for restoring and improving this historic landmark.​
