Hogan's Fountain, 1905

Hogan's Fountain, located atop a small hill in Cherokee Park, has become a favorite gathering spot for park visitors. The fountain was designed as a drinking fountain for dogs and horses. Water pouring from the mouths of four bronze dog heads at the base provides water in a trough for dogs. The large granite bowl holds water for horses.

On the very top is the statue of Pan, the Greek god of the forest and herds. Pan is said to have found refuge in fountains after man cut down the woods. Mr. and Mrs. W.J. Hogan of Anchorage donated money for the fountain. Mrs. Hogan participated in selecting the fountain's theme, and local celebrated sculptor Enid Yandell was chosen as the sculptor. Yandell was also the sculptor of the Daniel Boone statue in Cherokee Park. She worked in Chicago and New York, and while living in France, sculpted with Auguste Rodin.
