  • Lost Studebaker fountain located

    It would be wonderful if the Studebaker fountain could be restored and located in a prominent place in South Bend. According to the article its condition would probably require considerable labor and money to bring it back to its former glory. Reminds me of some other objects with the same name...like a station wagon. Tim Janowiak and other Studebaker enthusiasts in the area are already investigating its condition and the challenges of restoration. It is hoped it can happen.

        The article kind of reminds me of a local park in Easton,PA that began back in the trolley days. The park was in disrepair so to get money the owners sold the original carousel-brass rings & all! Rob in PA.

          The fountain is in amazingly good shape and though not an expert from what I've researched it could be blasted with walnut shells or other material, fix cracks with a product similar to J.B. Weld and painted with epoxy paint. Hoping to get a professional opinion soon and meet with Center for History who are in charge of it's destiny. What a great piece of art, history and tourism for South Bend with an amazing story and journey. Wish us luck.
