Women’s Leadership Fountain

Womens Leadership 001

Location:  The Paseo and East 9th Street, Kansas City, MO

The second fountain built in Kansas City, it was completed in 1899, and its oldest working fountain.  After a long period of non-use, it was renovated in three stages, completed in 2003.  It is dedicated to 13 women who have made notable contributions to the city and a plaque will be added sometime in the future.

It is located at the north end of the median and faces East 9th.  There is really nowhere nearby to park, the nearest actual parking lot is a block north at a grocery store, and it’s a questionable neighborhood, so be careful out there if you’re walking.
