"Interesting Sculpture"

The Nathaniel Wheeler Memorial Fountain in Bridgeport, Connecticut was constructed in 1912–1913 and designed by unconventional American sculptor Gutzon Borglum. Nathaniel Wheeler's children had this sculpture to the city as an ode to their loving father, who had also been an important town personality. The structure shows a central bronze figure of a mermaid with a child in one hand and a lamp in the other, as fish seem to circling around her fins. The monument was repaired in 2009-2010 and was included to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
