Save The Lady And The Birds

Your help is needed to make sure this last year isn't the last for our much loved fountain at the Gardiner Common

Gardiner Rotary Club is partnering with Gardiner Main Street to offer online donations to support the restoration of Lady and the Birds fountain at the Gardiner Common. This commemorative public art is named for Gideon S. Palmer, Civil War regimental surgeon and later, Director of Freedmen’s Hospital.

Our fountain is more than 100 years old and needs extensive repairs to the concrete, the plumbing, and the electrical.

Every donation help reach our fundraising goal of $100,000!


To donate by cash or check made payable to The City of Gardiner:


Gardiner City Hall, 6 Church Street
