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 do the following:

  • 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, and
  • Embrace the Northland’s role in establishing Kansas City.

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

Please join us by making a donation to the François Chouteau & Native American Heritage Fountain today.
