Burnside Fountain
178 Church Street, Worcester

Fondly know as “Turtle Boy," the Burnside Fountain is a statue of a boy with a hawksbill sea turtle. It was originally designed as a watering trough for horses. Water originally poured from the turtle’s mouth into a series of four drinking basins. At the rear of the pedestal is a ground-level trough for dogs. Harriet Burnside gave $5,000 to the City in 1903 to create the fountain in memory of her father Samuel Burnside.
