The fountain was originally built in the center of the intersection of 10th and I Streets in Modesto. It was designed to be fountain for both horses and people. With the advent of the automobile. the fountain was moved several times and eventually dismantled and placed in the Modesto City Corporation Yard. The medal depicts the fountain as it looked upon its completion.
