Long Description:
This western style ceramic fountain has been standing, presumably at this location, since September 14th, 1911, on which date it was presented to the town by the Ladies Civic Improvement Club. Sixty Five years later, in 1976, a plaque was mounted nearby on a small concrete plinth which reads as follows:

NEWPORT'S DRINKING FOUNTAIN
SERVING MAN BEAST AND DOG
FOR THREE GENERATIONS
ERECTED BY
LADIES CIVIC IMPROVEMENT CLUB
SEPTEMBER 14, 1911

PLAQUE DEDICATED BY
NEWPORT-OLDTOWN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
1976

Only one log per location per person (meaning multiple visits -> multiple logged visits -> OK!). You should log your own waymarked fountains as well. After all, you did in fact visit the area to which you marked to way.

Even if an individual waymark owner has a requirement indicating a photo is required, it is not. If there is any dispute, contact the category management group for clarification.
