Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Peace Fountain is back in place.

The City of Rochester issued a news release Friday afternoon announcing the reinstallation of the sculpture by Charles E. Gagnon that had been the centerpiece of the Peace Plaza in downtown Rochester since 1988. The fountain was removed last year for the remaking of the Peace Plaza as part of the DMC Heart of the City phase one project. While it was way, the sculpture was cleaned, refurbished, and installed on a new pedestal.

It's a favorite spot with a lot of memories for our town.

An official unveiling of the refurbished Peace Fountain is scheduled to take place next Tuesday morning. That will include comments by a number of community leaders, including Mayor Kim Norton and Destination Medical Center Executive Director Patrick Seeb, and Rochester Downtown Alliance Executive Director Holly Masek.
