— United Spanish War Veterans 1898 · 1902 —

In 1918 this gateway was erected as a memorial to Civil and Spanish War veterans. The bronze statue on the left is a Union soldier while the one on the right is a Rough Rider. The original gateway was 12 feet apart and included a folding bronze gate. In 1933 the pillars were widened to 33 feet to allow for large vehicles. After a vehicle destroyed part of the left pillar in 1990, it was rebuilt in 1992 at a cost of $70,000. The original cost of the entire gateway was $13,000.

In memory of the men of this vicinity
who gave their lives to the defense
of their country
Dedicated to all our loyal sons
who showed distinguished valor
upon the nation's battlefields
This memorial erected in 1917
by the County of Saline
