Until electricity was introduced in the late 1880s, gas and kerosene lamps provided lighting in Public Square-now Pack Square.  Horse-lined fountains, fed from a reservoir on Beaucatcher Mountain, were affixed to lamposts at the east and west ends of this square.  The bronze fixture, Childhood, represents the promise of Asheville’s future.
