Dexter Hoxie, who spent much of his life in Peace Dale and served as personal secretary to Rowland Gibson Hazard II, also took many fine photographs of the village in the first years of the 20th century. Here are 4 from the Library’s Photograph Collection that show the Fountain in its original location. These date from approximately 1900-1905.
