Loveland, Ohio – Sara Young said, “I snapped this picture of our beautiful downtown fountain while on a walk with a friend on one of these beautiful fall evenings. Our girls were enjoying a Daisy Scout outing at Loveland Nature Preserve, so us moms decided to do the same.”

The fountain is on a small parcel of green-space in Historic Downtown Loveland owned by former Loveland resident, Martin Schickel. Loveland’s historic train depot is in the background.

Sara lives in Symmes Township, with 3 children who attend Loveland Schools. “I love taking photos of beautiful places and of my kids having fun,” said Sara.



  1. Hello Martin,

    Thanks for telling us more about the fountain and depot. Loveland owes a lot of gratitude to you and your family for both of these icons – well that’s 3 altogether counting your preservation of the green-space in Historic Downtown. Hope all is well. Thanks again. David Miller – Publisher

  2. Nice photo Sara. I installed the fountain in 2007 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Train Depot. While the fountain is “new” the spot is historic. The sidewalk and circle it sits on can be seen in the oldest photos and a war memorial, now lost to history, once sat in the same spot.. My Dad and Mom rescued and renovated the historic train depot when I was a kid and I have the good fortune to be its current steward.
