Haller Fountain


The historic Haller Statue, just down the street from the Fountain Cafe, is a treasured landmark in Port Townsend. The historical work of art has an interesting history. Originally it was designed and sculpted for the Mexican exhibit at the 1893 Chicago Exhibition. After its showing at the Chicago Exhibition it was ordered from a catalog in 1905 and shipped to Port Townsend by Theodore N. Haller. Later the philanthropist donated the "goddess statue" to the city of Port Townsend "in memory of early pioneers." The feminine figure appears au natural and stirred up occasional controversy, particularly among the proper women in the uptown homes above the Haller fountain. Likewise the two cherubs riding dolphins at the goddess's feet seem to have lost their swimming suits. The parklike setting surrounding the fountain is conducive to quiet contemplation, a casual picnic or a bench from which to watch the passersby.

  3. I will recommend this matcha sensation site to all my friends. It is Matcha green tea’s ability to make people feel alert yet serene that has made it so highly prized by Buddhist monks preparing for meditation. The next time you crave a coffee or espresso-based latte, carefully consider having a Matcha tea latte instead.

  5. Fountains are mystical buildings because the power of water and stones are connected together. I think that natural elements contain the greatest energy in the world and you can feel it even if you watch it. I have a collection of photos of different fountains all over the world in my blog https://blog.payoneer.com/freelancers/industry-tips-fl/the-freelancers-dilemma-charge-by-the-project-or-by-the-hour/ .
