The Montefiore Fountain is a classically attractive architectural piece which has pride of place in the capital city of Bridgetown in Barbados. It is classified as a public monument and while its home was Beckwith place for over a hundred years, it has been in its present location of Coleridge Street since 1940.
A gift to the capital city, it was bestowed by John Montefiore in memory of the life of his father, John Castello Montefiore who departed from the earth in 1854 after a bout of cholera. While it remained a piece of beauty, the fountain, intended as a drinking fountain, was not functional for many years. With the assistance of a conservator from Puerto Rico, the National Art Gallery Committee of the Ministry of Community Development and Culture is committed to a project designed to return the statue to its original appearance.
