Terry Barnes Memorial Fountain

November 9, 2016

Location:  William Jewell College, Liberty, MO


Owner:  William Jewell College


Dates:  2000



This fountain serves as a gateway to the campus of William Jewell College at the Mill Street entrance in Liberty.  It is a large, interactive fountain that invites people to walk in and around it.  There is a gap in the fountain so that people can get inside of the fountain and sit or stand on the central pedestal.  It is a popular place to cool off during the hot summer.


The fountain is a memorial to Terry D. Barnes, a 1989 graduate of William Jewell.  Barnes was killed in his own apartment by police in a tragic case of mistaken identity.  The fountain, a gift from the Barnes family to the college, was installed and completed in 2000.
