Fireman Fountain - Chattanooga, TN

Fireman Fountain - Chattanooga, TN

In 1887, Chattanoogans wanted to honor their faller Fireman heroes and the town erected this cast iron fountain near the courthouse square. Along with a Spanish-American War Cannon the fountain is located in a small triangular area bounded by 6th, Georgia and Lookout streets.

Soon before this photo was taken in the fall on 2009, the fountain was restored to its original condition. The fireman is holding a firehose, and the fountain water shoots up out of that hose.
