  • Melissa: There was supposed to be a spring in the vicinity of Indian Park where the Indians would camp when they came to visit Lorimier. In those days the word "fountain" was used for natural as well as man-made water sources (for example, the "Fountain of Youth").

    If this was the origin of Fountain Street, however, there's a slight problem: the spring was probably closer to Lorimier Street than Fountain Street.
