It was built in 1912 by the Woman's Christian Temperance Union to provide water as an alternative to alcohol consumption. The fountain honored Mrs. Lavina Nichols, the local founder of the Shenandoah WCTU chapter. It cost $500 to install, and features a 4 by 4 feet (1.2 by 1.2 m) base and pedestal that is 7 feet (2.1 m) tall. The sign and column were added ten years later. The fountain was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
