History:  

FOUNTAIN, settled in 1853, organized May 11, 1858, was named for its large "Fountain Spring" in section 4, whence the railway village of Fountain, platted when the railway was built, in 1870, derives its water supply. The village was incorporated, by an act of the legislature, on March 3, 1876. It had a station of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad in section 10 and a post office from 1870.

Recreation:

Root River Trail

Discover the dramatic river-carved blufflands of southeastern Minnesota on this paved, 42-mile trail. The trail begins in Fountain and runs through the quaint and picturesque rural communities of Lanesboro, Whalan, Peterson, Rushford and Houston. Constructed on an abandoned railroad, the trail is generally level and wheelchair accessible. However, the eastern segment between Vinegar Ridge and Houston is more challenging than the western segment with a rather steep, half-mile segment that may not be suitable for all users.
