Fountain history:

Fountain is named for Fountain Creek which runs through the Fountain Valley on its way to join the Arkansas River in Pueblo. The Creek was the main source of water in the area and people depended on it. Fountain was founded in 1859 and is the oldest town in the county. It began as an agricultural center where cattle and crops were sent out by railroad. In the early years, Fountain aspired to become the State Capitol rather than Denver.
