This arch—formally know as the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch—was constructed in 1892 as tribute to those who died defending the Union in the Civil War. The arch structure is designed in a Beaux Arts style and topped by a sculpture of a group of soldiers attending to a chariot. A greenmarket operates near its base every Saturday, year-round.
