Sounds like you have an old threaded fork with a quill stem. Loosen that bolt on the top a little bit then give the bolt a bit of a tap with a hammer or something to loosen up the wedge. You should then be able to twist it out (hold the wheel between your knees and twist the bars for leverage).
If tapping it with a hammer doesn't break the wedge loose it's probably rusted in pretty good; smack whoever assembled it for not using enough grease, then take it down to your bike shop.
