Zacapa Fountain


How many Selmians ever heard of the Zacapa Fountain? I had not until I found this marker in front of the old Dallas Academy. The fountain no longer stands, but the site has pretty shrubbery, and the marker states that the fountain was dedicated to the people of Zacapa, Guatemala from the people of Selma back in 1970.

So what happened to the fountain, and is this Guatemala town our "sister city?"

I'm curious about the missing fountain and the sister city connection.

Me too! I'm sure somebody around here still knows about an event of 40 years ago!
