The original fountain was designed by noted architect Jacob Wrey Mould. It was placed in front of City Hall 1871, two hundred feet northeast of its present location. The fountain remained there until 1920, when it was disassembled and shipped to Crotona Park in the Bronx. In 1999, the granite base of the fountain was returned to City Hall Park. Replicas of the centerpiece, ornate bronze candelabra, and flickering gas lamps were crafted from Mould's original designs as part of the Park's restoration.
