Polk County, Iowa

The fountain became inoperable when the water pipes froze, but it is a magnificent reminder of a lifetime of work.
Augustus was secretary and manger for the Des Moines Waterworks from 1880-1896 making it one of the strongest companies in the state. Chas. Denman took over for his father with Des Moines Waterworks from and infant company to a giant concern, being rated, at his deathe as one of the best in the nation valued at $7,000,000! He added a lagoon and pool and 7,000 trees and shrubs added each year right at the entrance. In 1933 it was opened to the public.
