Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Swann Memorial Fountain

Swann Memorial Fountain

One of the focal points of Benjamin Franklin Parkway is Logan Circle’s Swann Memorial Fountain, built in 1924. Large Native American figures symbolize major local waterways: the Delaware River (a man), the Schuylkill River (a woman) and Wissahickon Creek (a girl). People standing on one side of the fountain see the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the background; on the other, City Hall, pictured here.
