The Governor’s Residence of the State of Maryland, known as Government House, was built in 1869 in a Victorian Style. The fountain is a new, prominent feature in the garden, seen by the public as they walk or drive past. The fountain has an overall Victorian appearance but is composed of the flora and fauna of the Chesapeake Bay region. The lip of the two basins is the white oak leaf, the state tree. The composition blends 21st century environmental awareness with the city’s history.
