Fountain and Inn

A fountain at the intersection of Main Street and West Lane is Ridgefield's symbol.  It was a gift from noted architect Cass Gilbert, who lived nearby.  Drunken drivers keep running into it.  The fountain has had a recent restoration, for which a generous and anonymous Ridgefield citizen paid half of the cost.

The fountain is now raised above the roadway in hopes that drunks will hit the lower level before damaging the fountain.  Flowers are changed with the seasons.  Fountain Inn is visible beyond the fountain.  I have not yet had a reason to book a room for visitors, but I hear that it is terrific.

A fine looking fountain. So glad the local citizens chipped in to restore it.
