Its not just about the fountain! With the Alabama Capital in the distance, at first it just looks like a pleasing urban landscape. But it has history. The square was the site of slave auctions. Rosa Park boarded the bus across from the fountain and...More

This fountain is a staple in downtown Montgomery! They decorate and change the water color for holidays and it's definitely a sight to see if you're in that area!

Really enjoyed visiting this fountain with our grandsons..5,9 and 12. Located in a very historic spot in Montgomery. Montgomery is doing their history preservation right by including both sides of history prominently !!! Sickened to see what is happening with Civil War memorials in other...More

Court square was the scene of many important events in US history. The fountain itself is ornate and attractive in its own right. Getting to it can be a bit of a challenge as it is in the center of a traffic circle.

A fountain, a fountain . . . the south loves their fountains but this is in a very unique and historical spot where Rosa Parks made her stand in the same spot they used to trade slaves at the Slave Market. History.

Beautiful. Historic place, sad place, if you look with your soul and understand the area and what it was used for...we have had many changes in the South, and we still have many more to go, but don't miss this beauty.

Was approached by a local as I was taking pictures and given extensive details of this landmark. People in Montgomery are just amazing with their ease of communicating their history.

A Montgomery landmark since 1886. It's worth a visit. The bus stop where Rosa Parks began her journey into history in December 1954 is right across the street.

Oldstyle fountain lies in the middle of traffic. Approach is challenging by walking, because cars go around.
