Watering Trough & Fountain
Circa Early 1900s
Memorial by Catlin Family Descendants
The carved stone drinking fountain and horse watering trough provided gravity-fed spring water during the early twentieth century, whenhorses and oxen pulled the heavy loads, people walked dusty roads to tend their affairs and students hiked by on their way to and from school.
Originally donated by Catlin family descendants to honor their ancestors and to benefit their fellow man, these monuments had been located at the top of "Meeting House Hill" near "Catlin Corners," where Harmony Hill and Locust Roads intersect Burlington Road.
The ever increasing volume of motor vehicle traffic throughout the decades had finally dictated that changes be made to improve the highway site lines throughout the immediate area where the spring-fed monuments had originally served.
They have been moved to this location for the safe keeping and viewing.
