The Maids of the Mist Fountain

In Lake Bluff Park there is a fountain called the Maids of the Mist. It was built in 1872 for the World’s Fair in Chicago. And then the owner of the Whitcomb purchased it for St. Joe in 1892.





I love old fountains in parks.  Think of how many families this fountain has seen walk past in 122 years? Or how much the area has changed in that time?
