Dakota Spirit Fountain Free 4th Street & Broadway Avenue Keep Yankton Beautiful presented this fountain to the City of Yankton in 2006. The fountain reconnects Yankton with its past of being called “The Fountain City”. This fountain fittingly called “Dakota Spirit” was sculpted out of one solid 18 ton block of South Dakota granite from Milbank. The fountain appears to be made of many layers. These layers represent all the different people that make up South Dakota’s past and present.
