Address:
Fireman’s Drinking Fountain 500 Main Street Slatington, PA 18080 Get Directions

The Fireman’s Drinking Fountain was dedicated in 1909 by Hose Company # 1, Slatington. The 12 foot high statue was purchased from J. W. Fiske Iron Works, New York City, for $700 and depicts a volunteer fireman carrying a child on his left arm and holding a lantern in his right hand.

Erected in the center of the Borough of Slatington, to supply a public water source on Main Street, the fountain was designed to provide a drinking fountain for people and a drinking area for horses and dogs. The statue was intended to be symbol of volunteer service, vigilance, and humanity.
