Long Description:
The following is taken directly from the plaque on the fountain:
The historice BARLOW FOUNTAIN was donated to the City of Barlow in 1904 by MARY SUSANNAH BARLOW as a tribute to her parents who platted the city in 1981.

WILLIAM BARLOW-sonof SUSANNAH LEE and SAMUEL KIMBROUGH BARLOW pioneer of 1845 and builder of THE BARLOW ROAD.

MARTHA ANN PARTLOW BARLOW-the generous hostess of their family mansion, now know as the historic WILLIAM BARLOW HOUSE. This family home remains on the orginal Barlow DLC site on Hwy 99E, looking south from this marker.

The dates engraved on the base of the Fountain indicate the year of death of Mary's beloved parents: 1901-Martha Ann Barlow and 1904-William Barlow.

The fountain has 3 tier of water; the lowest for dogs, the middle for horses and the highest was a drinking fountain for people. This fountain remains for us a significant reminder of BARLOW's historic past.
