Inscription
From the late 19th century until the early 1920's,
a hand-operated pump was located in the
center of the intersection of Bridge and High
Streets in Historic Dublin. The pump supplied
water from Dublin's first well, which in turn
drew water from the nearby Dublin Spring.
One of four such water pumps in the village,
this main pump served as the primary source of
water for the people of Dublin as well as
travelers passing through by horse
and stagecoach. It became a place for residents of a
small, close-knit community to meet, share news
and connect with one another. As automobiles
became the preferred mode of transportation,
the pump was removed and eventually replaced
with a traffic light.The site continues to
serve as a community gathering spot today.
