The fountain is located on the northeast side of the Clay County Administraion Building in downtown Liberty. The historical marker is two-sided. The side facing the fountain describes the memorial and what it is commemorating. The other side has a listing of African-American pioneers, sorted by their varying roles in the community, by city (Excelsior Springs is included) and by time period.
