The Puking Pig

The puking pig fountain is located in Lyndon Center, near the center of town. It is a monument/statue of a pig with running water that comes out of its mouth. The boar fountain, one of four in the U.S., is commonly referred to as the "puking pig," and is not far off from Lyndon Institute.

It's also known as the "Barfing Boar." The original supposedly dates to ancient Rome. This copy was dedicated in 1912, a gift from the president of the town bank.
