A fountain commemorates soldiers who fell in the South African (Boer) War.
Through the action of the New Norfolk War Memorial. Committee, the monumental fountain, erected to the memory of soldiers who fell in the Boer War, has been moved and re-erected in the New Norfolk Municipal Reserve. Last year, a report was published in "The Mercury" directing attention to the neglected state of the memorial, erected by public subscription at the corner of High and Stephens streets soon after the Boer War.
