The Brewer Fountain is fountain inside an octagon at the beginning of the Freedom Trail in the Boston Common. We were in town during a chilly snowstorm so the fountain was not operational.

Although the fountain wasn’t on it was still nice to see. You can make out some of the details. Nice park setting and worth a look.

At the very beginning of the Freedom Trail you will see the Brewer Fountain. Large and elegant at the edge of The Boston Common. It is nice to sit next to on a warm day!

At the top edge of Boston Common is the beautiful Brewer Fountain, there are plenty of sights to see wandering around the common i.e. the frog pond but his is worth a stop.

This fountain is on the Freedom trail, so is worth taking a look at. It's not worth spending a lot of time at, with all of the other interesting sites to see.
