American Legion #2

American Legion 2 003

Location:  Battle of Westport Museum, 6601 Swope Parkway, Swope Park, Kansas City, MO

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.
