The Cheyenne Historic Preservation Board is in the process of restoring the 85-year-old water fountain to its previous glory and getting water flowing from it again.

The water fountain at the Cheyenne Airport was built to memorialize early aviation; it was built in 1934. Currently, the Cheyenne Historic Preservation Board is in the process of restoring the fountain with the Airport Fountain Restoration Project. When completed, the fountain will be working and the terracotta restored.
