Hebe Fountain

Artist

Year

1876

This historic Memphis landmark was erected in Court Square as a donation to the city of Memphis by many prominent Memphians in 1876. It is a copy of a sculpure by Antonio Canova. The fountain features the Greek gods’ mythological cupbearer Hebe. It began with catfish and turtles in its basin, switched to goldfish in the mid-1900s, and, after a renovation in 1980, the basin is now shallow and has a few pennies in it from wishers.
