The three-tier fountain in the center of the city square is a draw for many. The fountain stands in the center of the town square, which is surrounded by an ornate block wall.  The square also boasts a small scale Statue of Liberty, as part of the Boy image of lady liberty replicaScout's 40th anniversary theme, “Strengthen the Arm of Liberty.”
