Category Archives: Jay Wolfe Memorial Fountain
Found: August 18, 2013
This fountain lies at the north end of the Jay Wolfe Automotive property near the intersection of NW Prairie View Road with North Congress Avenue. It is a memorial to Jay Wolfe, the original owner of the car dealership.
If you go to look at this fountain, keep in mind that this is, indeed, a car dealership, Toyota to be specific. I parked across the street at the hotel and walked over. The dealership was actually closed the Sunday afternoon I was out there and the entrances are gated. The entrances were at least a quarter-mile down on both Congress and Prairie View. Even if it were open, the closest you would be able to park would be up at the showroom/office building and I am sure you would have to deal with a salesperson should you drive in and park.
Also, I would have to imagine that the vehicle in the middle of the fountain changes now and then depending on what model they are wanting to showcase. I-29 runs next to Prairie View Road and I imagine it’s quite a sight to see a car sitting in the middle of a fountain.
