“One of Portlands historical fountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Shemanski Fountain, on the Park blocks between SW Salmon and Main, is also known as Rebecca at the Well. One of my personal favorites because I’ve always had a fascination with old wells and thinking about all the different ways people in the distant past had to get their water! This lovely fountain was a gift to the city from Joseph Shemanski. The city of Portland was so kind to Shemanski that in 1926 he gave the city a fountain to show his appreciation! The designer of the fountain was Carl L. Linde. The fountain’s design is Italianesque trefoil. The cast stone structure that surrounds the bronze sculpture was designed by Oliver Laurence Barrett.
