Eagle Scout Memorial Fountain
The Eagle Scout Tribute Fountain is set against the backdrop of a 22-foot-high marble sculpture by Adolph Weinman, originally created in 1910 for the entrance to Pennsylvania Station in New York City. The sculpture consists of a large wreath bordered on each side by a woman and an eagle. The women represent Day and Night. Within the wreath there was once a clock, now replaced by an enlarged Boy Scout Eagle Badge. In front of the sculptures is a two-tiered fountain pool, reached by two winding concrete staircases representing the steps to attaining an Eagle Badge.
The City of Fountains Foundation (COFF) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1973 to promote and advocate for public fountains, sculptures and monuments in the Kansas City area. The Foundation assists in the development of public fountain and sculpture projects; and raises funds and holds endowments to help maintain, acquire, construct, relocate and conserve these landmarks for which Kansas City is famous.
