Next to a large sycamore tree, under a small spring house. The spring house has a marble statue of a woman on top. You will need to a ladle or a cup to reach into the spring house.
The spring was used on the Vassar estate to feed large fountains. The walking trails have a guided tour map that shows you ruins and tells you about the history of the spring. Originally the statue on the spring house was a dog.
