Butler Memorial Fountain - New Orleans City Park

Butler Memorial Fountain

The original fountain and sculpture, Unfortunate Boot, was a memorial for William Frazer Owen, Jr., donated by his parents. In 1929, the sculpture was replaced by the bronze statue of a water nymph, Chloe. In 1994, the fountain was restored in honor of Patrick J. Butler. It is located on City Park Avenue near N. Hennessy Street in the Old Grove.
