Tomahawk Fountain

Tomahawk Fountain

The Tomahawk Fountain is situated on a triangular traffic island at the intersection of Tomahawk Road and Wenonga Road in Mission Hills. The fountain and its base are made of coquina limestone and pool is made of roughhewn stone. The saucer of the fountain is 40 inches in diameter. This fountain is a replacement fountain. In the 1960s, the original fountain was vandalized beyond repair and this fountain took its place.
