Discovered in 1803 by Gideon Putnam while clearing land around Congress Park. Purchased by John Clark in 1823, he constructed a Grecian pavillion over it in 1840.

The City and Historical Society rebuilt the structure in 1981.

Presently the water flows here from Loughberry Lake, the City's water supply.
