The Horse Fountain   7th and Main   Rapid City, SD

1911 Lion's Head horse fountain placed by the National Humane Alliance of New York. It was restored in 2004, and placed in its original setting on 7th and Main Streets. The upper basin was for watering horses and there are 2 small basins that are at nose level for cats and dogs that visited as well. It has a lovely cool sound on a day when the mercury reaches in the 90s. If you search the web, many cities had similar fountains for their equine citizens during the pre-automobile days.
