The Haller Fountain Depicts the Goddess Venus

on September 24, 2006

The Haller Fountain in downtown Port Townsend (pop. 8,334) was donated to the community in 1906 by Theodore Haller, and is said to depict the Roman goddess Venus rising from the sea. After the statue was damaged, the Kiwanis Club raised money to have the bronze statue re-cast at the local Riverdog Fine Arts foundry in 1993
