This drinking fountain was erected and dedicated in the summer of 2001 as a legacy freedom monument honoring African-American pioneers and their contributions to Clay County.

The fountain is located on the northeast side of the Clay County Administraion Building in downtown Liberty.  The historical marker is two-sided.  The side facing the fountain describes the memorial and what it is commemorating.  The other side has a listing of African-American pioneers, sorted by their varying roles in the community, by city (Excelsior Springs is included) and by time period.
