Created in the 1840's, Forsyth Park,a 10 acre plot of land was donated by William Hodgson.
A few years later the 33rd Governor of Georgia, John Forsyth, donated an additional 20 acres to equal the present size of 30 acres. In honor of this generosity, the park was named Forsyth.
The park was designed after the French ideal of having a center public garden with a fountain in the middle. Even though the park wasn't laid out to have a fountain in the middle, theyordered a fountain that looks like the Place-de-las-Concorde in Paris, France.
No other fountain can boast of its splendor with the lush greenery and Spanish moss draping the oaks surrounding the fountain. Bring a good book and a blanket, and spend a sunny afternoon under the shade of an oak tree.
This ¾" thick wooden replica is handcrafted in the U.S.A.. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of this special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday. A short description is written on the back. Look for Casper, our black cat mascot, purrfectly content to lazily bask on the base of the fountain. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
