Made by history

August 10, 2016 - 1:05pm
"What the what? Where did that come from? I know it says 1900 right on it, but surely it hasn't always been there, right?" Those were the thoughts that ran through my head the first time I noticed the stone monument between Linton Hall and the MSU Museum in the "sacred space" near Beaumont Tower. I was a student at the time, and had walked that path numerous times since I lived in Campbell Hall. For some reason that spring day, I noticed the stone. I didn't know anything about it, but the date alone told me it was part of MSU history. I wondered how many Spartans had passed by without ever noticing-my guess would be quite a few. Last October on a tour given by the Campus Archeology Program, I learned that the stone was actually a water fountain donated to the university by the Class of 1900. One side provided water for horse (the side facing out on the sidewalk) and the other side for people. When I walked through the brush to the backside, sure enough, there was a spigot I had never seen that had long ago served water to Spartans walking along the path. All those years later, the 1900 stone still had some surprises for me. In more than a century's time, imagine all the MSU history that fountain has witnessed-thousands of students have roamed campus, hundreds of buildings were built, countless discoveries made and innumerable lives changed.
