This page contains photographs of some of the fountains, statues, and urns not found on other pages in the arboretum site. These artworks were for the most part brought to the campus during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Many are located in or near one of the four historic gardens.

This fountain, no longer functional, is located west of the Chapel and Farley Center. Behind it is a flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) and a Norway Maple (Acer platanoides).

 

The lion and marble staircase date from the Gould era. The Jesus statue was added after the Sisters of Mercy purchased the Gould estate. The setting here is the Sunken Garden. The dark background is provided by several cultivars of Moss Cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera).
