Surrounded by lovely Victorian-era homes, many of which are on the National Register of Historic Places, this city block is the home of a beautifully restored fountain. The fountain’s center is a turn-of-the century bronze statue of Princess Wenonah (“first born daughter”) circled by water- spraying pelicans and turtles. A wooden gazebo and the unique landscaping complete this Victorian-era square.
William Windom, for whom the park was named, lived across the street in the 1870′s, served in the U.S. Congress and Senate for a total of 24 years and was twice Secretary of the Treasury.
The fountain in Windom Park was donated in 1900 by Wm J. Landon in memory of his wife Ida Cone Landon.
