Fountain at Ball & 15th Streets
Gift of Henry Rosenberg
15th & Ball 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 fountain originally stood in Morris Lasker Park, located from 40th Street to 41st Street between Winnie and Ball. Relocated during the 1940s, it stood on a grass plot next to the Jack Tar Hotel on 6th Street and Seawall Boulevard. Today it has its own mini-park on the corner of 15th Street and Ball.
It is one of nine remaining fountains of the original seventeen that Henry Rosenberg funded in his last will and testament.
