The Fountain of Honor was created by Henry Lion and dedicated in 1930 to honor all husbands and sons of Ebell Club members who served in World War I.  It is a life-sized female figure holding a flag, on a concrete base in the middle of a 16-sided fountain.  Her right arm raises an oil lamp, and she wears a flowing gown and sandals.  On opposite sides of the base are two small animal heads.  The Ebell Club was founded in 1894 and is a philanthropic, educational and social club built by women for women.
