After the second state capitol had been destroyed, Michigan Governor Henry P. Baldwin initiated the passing of a bill that would cover the costs for a new building.

The renaissance revival brick and sandstone building soared 267 feet from the ground and was dedicated on January 1, 1879.
1887 · The Bagley Memorial Fountain

Age 17

"The Bagley Memorial Fountain was erected in 1887 with funds from the estate of John Judson Bagley. Bagley's will ordered the construction of the drinking fountain which would provide the people of Detroit ""water cold and pure as the coldest mountain stream."" H.H. Richards was the architect for the Romanesque-style, pink granite, lionhead fountain. It is engraved with the words, ""TESTAMENTARY GIFT FOR THE PEOPLE FROM JOHN JUDSON BAGLEY A.D. MDCCCLXXXVII""."

Name Meaning

English: patronymic from the personal name Robert . This surname is very frequent in Wales and west central England. It is also occasionally borne by Jews, presumably as an Americanized form of a like-sounding Jewish surname.
