Inscription
Until electricity was introduced in the late 1880s, gas and kerosene lamps provided lighting in Public Square—now Pack Square. Horse-head fountains, fed from a reservoir on Beaucatcher Mountain, were affixed to lampposts at the east and west ends of the square. The bronze figure, Childhood, represents the promise of Asheville's future.

Placed in honor of Elaine McPherson—artist, poet, and tailor—who lived at 19½ Biltmore Avenue and who played on Pack Square as a young child
