Staple in downtown Montgomery!

This fountain truly is a staple in downtown Montgomery. It's absolutely beautiful! They change the color of the water sometimes to match holidays and/or events. A must see!

Maybe early or late it would be better but midday it is really too busy to walk out to, or even find a close parking spot. Or at... More

Stop off here as it is the area where the slave auctions were held. It's a pretty fountain and there is an information board nearby.

Great opportunity to utilize the history of the city to explain the slow improvements in civil rights from slave auctions to Rosa Parks and the march from Selma to the state capital all in one location.

This beautiful fountain sits just outside the hub bub of downtown Montgomery. Luckily I go to some shops in the area and have seen it at multiple times and climates. Simple but beautiful.

A nice fountain with quite a lot of historical plaques dotted around this area. Well worth paying a visit to this area of Downtown.

We thought this was one of the better memorial that we visited while in Montgomery Alabama. Downtown location on the square, easy to fine as part of the Heritage Trail. Take your camera, very good for selfies!

The Court Square Fountain was erected in 1885. This well was the original watering site for Montgomery and the surrounding communities. On top of the fountain is "Hebe, goddess of youth and cup bearer to the Gods (Greek Mythology). Her cup is raised welcoming visitors the city of Montgomery. It is worth a look if you are downtown.
