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.
Unlike the other Rosenberg fountains, this one was intended for use by people only. It did not have separate basins for animals. It was originally placed in a park at the opposite side of this block. The fountain was later moved to its current location where the 1885 Rosenberg School building once stood.
It is one of nine remaining fountains of the original seventeen that Henry Rosenberg funded in his last will and testament.
