Description

Popularly known as the "Bronze Bear" fountain, this Main Street landmark was commissioned by Herbert and William Austin Wadsworth in memory of their mother. It was designed by Richard Morris Hunt; provenance of the bronze sculpture is less clear. The fountain was installed in 1888 and over the years suffered from neglect and vandalism. Beginning in 2008, the Association for the Preservation of Geneseo undertook a restoration of the fountain to its original state.
