Jay Wolfe Memorial Fountain

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Location:  Jay Wolfe Automotive, 9650 NW Prairie View Road, Kansas City, MO

Found:  August 18, 2013

This fountain lies at the north end of the Jay Wolfe Automotive property near the intersection of NW Prairie View Road with North Congress Avenue.  It is a memorial to Jay Wolfe, the original owner of the car dealership.

If you go to look at this fountain, keep in mind that this is, indeed, a car dealership, Toyota to be specific.  I parked across the street at the hotel and walked over.  The dealership was actually closed the Sunday afternoon I was out there and the entrances are gated.  The entrances were at least a quarter-mile down on both Congress and Prairie View.  Even if it were open, the closest you would be able to park would be up at the showroom/office building and I am sure you would have to deal with a salesperson should you drive in and park.

Also, I would have to imagine that the vehicle in the middle of the fountain changes now and then depending on what model they are wanting to showcase.  I-29 runs next to Prairie View Road and I imagine it’s quite a sight to see a car sitting in the middle of a fountain.
