LEBANON, N.H. (AP) - A new fountain has been added to Lebanon’s pedestrian mall as part of the western New Hampshire city’s latest attempt to revive its reputation as the City of Fountains.

The Valley News reports (http://bit.ly/1QxHqKu ) residents gathered Wednesday to celebrate the fountain, which was funded by $78,000 in donations from individuals and local businesses.

The granite fountain features a 7-foot-wide bowl on a pedestal surrounded by a 20-foot-wide basin. Bronze sculptures of turtles and dolphins spout water from their mouths into the fountain.

Architect Andrew Garthwaite said his goal was to bring “a bit of Renaissance and Italian civic life to our city here.”

Priscilla Gosselin, leader of the fountain group, says she hopes to bring more fountains to Lebanon.
