One of the city’s most recognizable landmarks is the J.C. Nichols Memorial Fountain, situated near the iconic Country Club Plaza. Built in Paris in 1910, it once adorned the estate of a New York millionaire. The fountain was salvaged from a scrapyard in 1951 and brought to Kansas City. The larger-than-life equestrian figures are said to represent four rivers: the Mississippi; the Seine, flowing from east-central France; the Rhine, originating in the southeastern Swiss Alps; and the Volga, Europe's longest river, located in Western Russia.
