Eagle Scout Memorial Fountain

Eagle Scout 002

Location:  East 39th Street, Harrison Parkway and Gillham Road, Kansas City, MO

Found:  September 21, 2013

An oddly laid out intersection of the three roads indicated above is the location of this fountain.  It is set up and away from the street with two winding stairways ending at the fountain.  The fountain and the sculpture is dedicated to those who earned the highest recognition in scouting, the Eagle Scout award.

The sculpture was originally part of the Pennsylvania Railroad Station in New York City, as you can read on the plaque, that was saved from being destroyed when the station was razed and donated to the memorial.  Originally, a clock was in the center of the sculpture, but was removed and the Eagle Scout badge was put in its place.
