Broadway Fountain

The Broadway Fountain, a treasure in Madison, is a bronze replica of the first 19th-century iron fountain that was part of Philadelphia’s 1876 Centennial Exposition. In 1886, the Independent Order in Odd Fellows purchased the water fountain and presented it to the town of Madison. The Broadway Fountain is the least modified design from the illustration on the James Kirtland Company catalog, although other copies of the fountain are available in Poughkeepsie, NY, Cusco, Peru, and Forsyth Park in Savannah, Georgia. In honor of the nation’s bicentennial celebration, Madison raised funds to restore the esplanade. In 1980, the water fountain was rededicated.
