This statue of Massasoit, a Wampanaog Indian Warrior who befriended the Pilgrims and helped them survive in the “new world”, is one of five originals.  The other four Massasoit sculptures created by Cyrus E. Dallin stand near Plymouth Rock, outside the Utah State Capitol building, on the campus of the Brigham Young University, and at the Springville Museum of Art in Springville, Utah.  The statue was purchased by the Nichols family and donated to Kansas City in 1979.

  1. What a great idea – photgraphing and listing the sculptures of your city. And Kansas City has a lot to offer.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks for your encouragement! Fortunately, Kansas City has a TON of sculptures and fountains to keep me busy. Unfortunately, I have a long, long way to go!


I love hearing from you!
