Some of the blocks on the arch, including the keystone, are vermiculated--they have designs cut in them resembling worm tracks.

Located next to the arch is a statue of Balto, the lead sled dog who transported diphtheria serum across Alaska in the winter of 1925.

Location: takes East Drive over park path east of the Mall west of about 67th Street. Built: 1861 by Vaux and Mould, with iron railing by J.B. & W.W. Cornell Iron Works. Made of sandstone and brick.
