Children of the Trails

Children of the Trails 002

Location:  Johnson County Courthouse, 100 N Kansas Avenue, Olathe

Found:  August 3, 2013

Located in the plaza approximately halfway between the old and new Johnson County Courthouses.  The sculpture consists of a boy, girl and a dog running with 5 doves in flight overhead.  Has also been called the Olathe City Hall Fountain as, apparently, it was once located at or near the Olathe City Hall.  A plaque on the fountain dedicates the fountain to those children lost on the trails during the settler days.
