Daniel Chester French - In 1899, the Town of Lee dedicated a public drinking fountain in memory of Amelia Jeannette Kilbon, a vibrant member of the Loyal Temperance Legion (part of the Christian Woman's Temperance Union). Daniel Chester French was commissioned by the Loyal Temperance Union to design the fountain which was to have two sides - a horse fountain and a drinking fountain. French used two images for the fountain from which the water flowed: an image of a Mohegan Indian, Chief Konkapot, and a fish. Chief Konkapot was Chief of the Stockbridge Mohican Indian tribe which, in 1722, sold what is much of Berkshire county to colonial settlers including the land which now makes up the town of Lee. Kilbon was instrumental in raising funds for the fountain; after her death, others continued raising funds and the fountain became a memorial to Kilbon and her work with the Loyal Temperance Legion.

The back of the fountain carries an inscription which tells the story of the dedicatee of the fountain, Amelia Jeannette Kilbon:

This Fountain Was Begun By
The Loyal Temperance Union
Under The Leadership Of
Amelia Jeannette Kilbon
And Was Completed By Other Friends
As A Tribute To Her Memory
1870 1897

Originally installed at the intersection of Railroad and Main Streets in Lee, it was moved to its present location on the Town Park Village Green after cars replaced horses as the primary mode of transportation. The fountain is made of Lee marble, quarried in Lee.

Chief Konkaput dispenses only half of the water that he was designed to offer. Yet the fountain remains a strong testament to the hard work of local citizens who not only fought drunkenness and the violence and crime that often followed it, but who also came together to give their town something as practical and necessary as a drinking fountain.

The Public Drinking Fountain ("Chief Konkapot") is located on the Town Park Village Green, adjacent to the Lee Town Hall.               See the front of the fountain.               See the back of the fountain.
