Posted in

Fountain, the western gateway to the Root River State Trail, is also the home of the Fillmore County Historical Center. The Historical Center houses a complete museum of antiques, collectibles, and memorabilia from the past, either lent or donated by residents or former residents of Fillmore County. It also offers a comprehensive library of information on the genealogy of Fillmore County. Of special interest is an airplane, constructed by Bernard Pietenpol, who resided in Cherry Grove, and was a pioneer aviator. A must see is our collection of over 35 restored Oliver tractors. Also, a rural one room school from the Fountain-Preston area has been renovated, restored, and is available for inspection on the museum grounds, located at the intersection of County Highway 8 and Highway 52.


Fountain offers an assortment of retail establishments, including Drury Furniture, offering quality furniture in room settings, and considered one of the leading furniture stores in southern Minnesota. Other businesses include Herman's Standard Service, Main Street Inn, Village Square, Ray N Dots Drive In, Willie's Grocery and Locker, Twelve Point Grill, Fountain Building Center, Fountain Grain and Feed, White Corner Cafe, Richard's Pump Service, K & R Equipment, Fountain Car Wash, Johnson Insurance Agency, The First State Bank of Fountain, Key to the Past, and Valley Design Enterprise.

Fountain's annual Trail Days celebration is held in June.
