Lorenzo Maynard Watering Trough

Feeling a little thirsty? This watering trough probably won’t help you much today, but back in the olden days, parched horses could get some relief at the corner of Nason and Main streets by sipping from this trough. Donated by Lorenzo Maynard (the son of town founder Amory Maynard), the watering trough was relocated several times before finding its permanent home at the Fire Station in 1969.  The generous Lorenzo also donated the Town Clock, which he considered his greatest achievement. Lorenzo Maynard died in 1904, then living in the town of Winchester, Massachusetts.
