Voorhies Memorial Seal Pond, 1958

The Voorhies Memorial Seal Pond was designed by sculptor Robert Garrison in 1922 as part of the Voorhies Memorial. John E. Voorhies was a banker who made his wealth in the early mining days. He funded the memorial which was located across from his home at 1425 Cleveland. The structure was designed by William Ellsworth and Arthur Addison Fisher to resemble the Water Gateway at the 1893 Columbian Exposition.
