Eagle Scout Memorial Fountain
One of Kansas City's most famous fountains, the Eagle Scout Memorial Fountain was dedicated in 1968. A 22-foot marble memorial with the image of the Eagle Scout badge overlooks the fountain, which was created by architect Maurice McMullen. McMullen designed the fountain pool and adjacent stairways to complement the marble structure, which was originally part of New York City's train station. Kansas City business and civic leaders saved this sculpture from destruction when the train station was demolished.
