— 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.
