Triumphal Arch

Description

Also known as the Vermont Centennial Arch, it was designed by William C. Bull to celebrate Vermont's statehood in 1791. It was built of wood and covered with canvas painted to replicate the stones of its better-known and more permant Battle Monument, likewise dedicated in 1891. At a ceremony attended by President Benjamin Harrison, 75 young men and women sang patriotic songs from atop the arch.
