The spring house is situated next to a large Sycamore tree. On top is a marble statue representing a woman. To get into the springhouse, you'll need a ladle and/or a cup.
Vassar owned large fountains that were fed by the spring. You can find a map of the trail that guides you through the ruin and tells you more about the spring's history. The statue that stands on the springhouse was originally a dog.
