Visit this memorial commemorating the brave men and women of the American armed forces.

Originally, The Victory Arch was built in 1919 for the victorious troops marching back from "over there." It was made of wood, and the maintenance was not practical. A permanent stone arch was built in its place and rededicated on May 30, 1962. World War 1 troops disembarked from ships and marched right through the arch in victory parades since it is also located right by the port.

On Memorial Day in 1969, an eternal flame was donated by the American Legion and added. The grounds around the arch are beautifully manicured with gardens. This stunning memorial is in the middle of downtown and is a great place to visit, view the ships, and hear the sounds of shipbuilders and merchants. Pay your respects to war veterans past and present at the victory arch.
