Chouteau Fountain Founders

The Chouteau Fountain Founders is a community volunteer organization dedicated to sharing the history of Kansas City with residents and visitors. Through the grace and artistry of the François Chouteau & Native American Heritage Fountain, the organization aspires to:

  • Celebrate Kansas City’s early cultures and commerce.
  • Connect people to history and each other.
  • Create an enriching destination within the Kansas City parks system.
  • Embrace the Northland’s role in establishing Kansas City.

Partnering with the Kansas City, Missouri Parks and Recreation Department, the City of Fountains Foundation, and generous, like-minded donors, the Chouteau Fountain Founders intends to enhance the community with a sustainable, historically accurate, and engaging landmark.
