Inscription.

The City of Atlanta Office of Cemetery Commission purchased this fountain from J. L. Mott Iron Works as a cemetery improvement. T. G. Spearman ordered the statue and constructed a masonry pool, which was altered in 1984. The figural group was restored in 1984 and 2002. In 2008, a reconstruction based on the former pool was built east of its location by the Historic Oakland Foundation. Because the fountain stood at the convergence of several roads, drives, and walks, the pool experienced regular damage from vehicles. The original location of the fountain is indicated by this cobblestone circle.
 
Erected by Historic Oakland Foundation.
