Texas Historical Commission Review

Let's start with a quote from a letter from Sara Ludueña, a THC project reviewer:

"We find that the proposed work of the fountain is appropriate and consistent with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation."

Yes! Another step toward bringing the fountain back to its original beauty!

Things that were emphasized by Ms. Ludueña as their understanding of the project were:

Much of the historic tile is to be replicated and replaced

The depth of the fountain will be changed to match existing codes [Ed.:As the fountain is right now, it must be classified as a swimming pool because of its depth]

The frog-shaped spouts on the edge of the upper tier will be reconstructed.

Join us in celebrating this milestone in the Fountain Project.

Read the letter in its entirety.
