History & History Related Items

Fountain Hills history:

Robert P. McCulloch bought 4,500 acres northeast of Scottsdale in 1960. It was once a large cattle ranch, but he changed all that by inviting his friend, Charles Wood, Jr. to join him in creating a new community. McCulloch wanted a landmark to help put the new town "on the map." This landmark was the famous fountain. The community is named for its rolling hills terrain and for its famous fountain. "The Fountain" is believed to be the tallest fountain in the world. It is located in a 28 acre lake. The fountain spews a column of water skyward to the height of 560 feet for 15 minutes every hour on the hour between 10 am and 9 pm. If wind gusts over 12 mph are present, the fountain may not operate. The fountain is almost three times higher than Old Faithful Geyser in Yellowstone National Park
