Fountain City, Indiana, is home to fewer than 800 people, but what it lacks in population, it more than makes up for in history.
In fact, the town is awaiting word on its application to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The styles of residential, commercial, and public buildings include Federal, Italianate, Queen Anne, Classical Revival, and Bungalow. Walking through Fountain City is rather like flipping through an encyclopedia of American architecture of the 19th and 20th centuries.
