Category Archives: American Legion #2
Found: September 14, 2013
This one-time drinking fountain is one of two fountains in Kansas City dedicated by the American Legion in 1921. It is located behind the Battle of Westport museum just north of the Jacob Loose Memorial Flagpole (you can’t miss it, it’s 178 feet tall!). The large bronze plaque depicts American soldiers entering a war-torn French village. The fountain is currently inoperable.
NOTE – The Foundation refers to this one as #2 of the two American Legion fountains and I am following the Foundation’s naming convention.
