Long Description:
Frankenmuth was formed by German immigrants around 1890, so it should come as no surprise that this fountain in the heart of downtown has a maypole erected in the traditional style with several long ribbons suspended from the top, festooned with flowers, draped in greenery and strapped with a large circular wreath.
