Meyers Circle Fountain


Named The Seahorse Fountain.  JC Nichols developed the Country Club Plaza and this area south of the Plaza.   I displayed many photo of the Plaza in Sept.   JC Nichols found the center piece of this fountain in Venice, Italy where it had stood for 300 years.  He purchased it and the fountain was completed in 1925.   This fountain has survived vandalism and car crashes.

I always wonder about vandalism. What the hell? What kind of kick can anyone getting out of it?

It's a beauty and look at those trees! They are beginning to really look like autumn in Versailles too except that in true All Saints fashion, the sky is grey!

But the name? Wishful thinking? KC? Seahorse? Kinda crazy, if you ask me. The rest of the story????

I'm glad it's been taken care of over the years. It's very pretty and even nicer in person. :)

I am so happy to see one of my favorite sights in Kansas City, especially with the lovely fall foliage. Thank you.
