In May of 2016, Dan Lepore & Sons Company graciously hosted a behind-the-scenes tour of the 4,000+ limestone conservation work for the Main Fountain Garden Revitalization project. Now it’s time to view the fountain restored to its original splendor and see all the mechanics that make this treasure truly shine. We will be honored to have Paul B. Redman, President and CEO of Longwood Gardens, spearheading the tour of the fountain to our members. We will begin the tour with an exploration of the mechanical tunnels below the fountain, followed by a dramatic show of the 5-acre fountain in action. A summer beer garden and café will be open for purchasing refreshments before or after the show.  

Built in 1931 by Pierre S. du Pont, the Main Fountain Garden at Longwood Gardens is recognized as one of the “crown jewels” of the Longwood site. Drawing from his European garden travels and passion for engineering design, Pierre engaged Florentine sculptors from Alessandro Olivotti & Co. to help create this architectural marvel.
