Fountain on 10th between Ball and Winnie Streets
Gift of Henry Rosenberg
10th between Ball & Winnie Streets, Galveston, TX (Directions)
One of the Gifts of Henry Rosenberg revealed in his will after his death in 1893. Of the original seventeen Rosenberg fountains, only nine still exist. Many of these have been moved to their present sites from other locations on the island. Each fountain bears a unique design.
This dog basin is not included in the original bid for the Rosenberg fountains, but it is inscribed with “Gift of Henry Rosenberg.” It is believed that after the larger fountains were built, excess funds were used to construct several small animal basins like this one.
This Rosenberg Gift is located near the sidewalk directly in front of Rosenberg Elementary School and is a great place to stop by if you are out walking your dog or just having a stroll in the neighborhood.
