Breyman Brothers fountain at west end of Willson Park

This photo is of the Breyman Brothers fountain at the west end of Willson Park in Salem, Oregon. This fountain was built in 1904 on the Capitol grounds and has a statue of what has often been called a soldier commemorating the Spanish-American War, but was originally identified as a pioneer looking and pointing to the west, above the base, and a watering trough for horses around the base. The fountain is cast-iron. The figure is in bronze. The base is concrete. Werner and Eugene Breyman came to Salem in 1865 and established a merchandise business. They sold their building in 1881 and went into real estate development and became famous throughout the Willamette Valley., Courtesy of Oregon State Library
