ST. ALBANS, Vt. (AP) - A 128-year-old fountain nicknamed “The Ladies” has returned home after a major restoration project that cost almost $300,000.

The St. Albans Rotary headed the restoration, raising money for nearly two years. The fountain, located in Taylor Park, was erected in 1887 and cost $4,000.

The fountain was cast and built by the J.W. Fisk company in New York City. The original molds were bought by Robinson Iron Alabama.

It was deconstructed last August and traveled to Alabama, where the fountain pieces were recast from the original mold.

A dedication ceremony is slated for Saturday at Taylor Park between noon and 2 p.m.
