The fountain reminded us of Italian fountains - very nice, and you can walk around it on the Round About. Be sure to take a look at it.

Amazingly sad history for such a beautiful location. Read the signs to learn about it or grab a visitors guide with a self guided driving or walking map. This place is hauntingly serene with a history that will make you really think about how slaves...More

Must see! Tons of history right here! Be sure to read the metal signs-lots of information.. like this is where slaves were traded, Rosa Parks got off the bus and the telegram about the civil war was received near this! Don’t miss it!

Centerpiece of Downtown Montgomery. Lots of gentrification being done in this section of the city. Glad to see they are maintaining the historic building facades in many cases with a modern structure inside and attached behind the old beautifully designed facade. As a bonus, there...More

Its not just about the fountain! With the Alabama Capital in the distance, at first it just looks like a pleasing urban landscape. But it has history. The square was the site of slave auctions. Rosa Park boarded the bus across from the fountain and...More

This fountain is a staple in downtown Montgomery! They decorate and change the water color for holidays and it's definitely a sight to see if you're in that area!

Really enjoyed visiting this fountain with our grandsons..5,9 and 12. Located in a very historic spot in Montgomery. Montgomery is doing their history preservation right by including both sides of history prominently !!! Sickened to see what is happening with Civil War memorials in other...More

Court square was the scene of many important events in US history. The fountain itself is ornate and attractive in its own right. Getting to it can be a bit of a challenge as it is in the center of a traffic circle.

A fountain, a fountain . . . the south loves their fountains but this is in a very unique and historical spot where Rosa Parks made her stand in the same spot they used to trade slaves at the Slave Market. History.
