As lovers of all things Kansas City and the fountains that give our hometown the moniker of “City of Fountains,” KC Restoration is excited to hear that the Chouteau Heritage Fountain will have its first statue shown off at an unveiling this week: Mar 6 at noon in the Rotunda at City Hall. The completed monument will be located along the Chouteau Greenway in the north part of the metro and will recreate the river bluffs where Rock Creek and the Missouri River converge with waterfalls over 8-foot limestone rock and mist jets generating a fog over the river. Three larger-than-life sculptures by atop the bluffs will depict trade between KC founder Francois Chouteau and Native Americans. A fourth statue of a Native American hunter will be located just downstream. Wednesday’s unveiling will also see renowned sculptor Kwan Wu on hand; we hope to see you there too!

We love the rejuvenated look and we love getting to play a part in maintaining KC’s cultural heritage in this historic place all Kansas Citians can call home.

Have you ever thought of starting your own business? It can be a daunting path but can present so many rewarding opportunities to grow and connect. If you’d pulled up to KC Restoration’s front door some year back, you’d be looking in a garage to see the owners working hard on elevator doors and metal hoods. In the years since, we have been blessed with clients giving us opportunities to both earn their business and prove their loyalty to be well-founded. We’ve also got to welcome many new team-members to work and grow beside, and we’ve learned so much about this wonderful hometown of Kansas City and the countless people and organizations improving the city and supporting small businesses. Today, as we look back on our 7 years, we’re thankful for everyone who formed the threads in the tapestry of KC Restoration’s story.
