Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Fountain

Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Fountain

LOCATION:
Broadway and W. 42nd St.



Installed: 1985

Designer: David Baker

Description
The fountain pools represent the country’s growing involvement in the war culminating in two pools symbolic of the divided opinions of the time. Words etched on the plaque at the entrance include: “This fountain is provocative in its honesty and beauty.”

It was developed by the Kansas City Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, Inc. A semi-circular wall backdrop has the names of 451 casualties. Visitors to this monument leave flags and flowers to honor those who served during one of America’s most turbulent eras.
