The fountain is a focal point in the community, couples, families singles are always visiting the fountain. The fountain is often used as the backdrop for wedding pictures, graduation pictures, and just for the scene.

This is the center of a roundabout in the center of our town. It has great lights at night that change. In the summer, the fountain is on with some pretty good patterns. The busiest time is prom. I believe every couple gets a picture...More

It's in the center of town, in the middle of a round about. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas, as was the whole town. We felt like we stepped inside a Hallmark Christmas movie!

Drove by the Brooks Memorial Fountain on our way to Sculer's to eat. Drove by it a second time after eating. Unfortunately it not at night either time. Still beautiful to look at and all four of us in the car enjoy it. Worth seeing.

Great historic landmark in Marshall. It is beautiful, make sure and see it at night when it is lit up. If you can make it at Christmas time when the manger is set up in it.

The fountain is well maintained and offers a great place to rest in the shade after shopping or sightseeing. Locals love this place. Mid-mornings around 9-10 a.m. the City workers do the daily maintenance during the temperate months. There are benches surrounding the fountain, and...More

The fountain is very pretty, and is well known in such a small town. We took a walking tour, and met the guide here, but we enjoyed spending a few free minutes walking around it and reading the plaque about it's history. Worth stopping to...More

We went by here in route to dinner. Very colorful. Changing lights. Right in the center of a round about so you can't miss it.

I thought that this fountain was going to be a destination but it is located in a round-a-bout. We parked in a closed gas station and walked across the street to take a look at it. The spray from the fountain changes as does the...More
