The Merz Fountain in Mt Pleasant

Adolph and Hyrum Merz learned how to carve stone monuments Switzerland and made the cemetery fountain for Mt Pleasant, Utah.

It was made to look like a tree stump and was very detailed. They did it free of charge for their community and it was admired by many. It was later moved from the cemetery to the front yard of the Relic Home.

The plaque on the fountain says:

This water fountain carved in stone from the hills north of Moroni, Utah was made by Hyrum and Adolph Merz and presented by them to the City of Mt. Pleasant, Utah in 1901.
