This fountain memorial, was originally topped by an Italian marble statue of a figure holding a torch. It was erected on the grounds of Trenton Junior High School #3 (presently Trenton High School West) as a memorial to Russell Terradell of Trenton & other Trenton men who gave their lives during World War I. The memorial was dedicated on July 4, 1925.
It was a gift of Mrs. Elliott F. Shepard, sister of Mr. Terradell. The basin & base of the monument were designed by Samuel Mountford.
