Long Description:
The Marker Reads as follows:

Fit For Man And Beast

This watering fountain at Broadway and 10th Street represents the last one of several located in each block down Broadway. It is Columbus’ oldest public fountain, dating back to the earliest days of the city. Called the Man and Beast fountain, it contains three watering bowls, one at street level for dogs, a large one in the middle for horses, and a medium-sized one near the top for people. Although we no longer go to the public fountains to collect drinking water, fountains offer our community an identity and sense of history in our public spaces.
