The Lyman Fountain was placed in the park at Eaton Square at the foot of Meeting House Hill in 1885. It was later lost, and a replacement fountain of lesser quality was placed in its site. A committee of neighboring stakeholders is trying to put a new ornamental fountain in the Square. Eaton Square is now also known as Coppens Square.
