1. The Confederate Memorial Arch Marker
Inscription.  This memorial arch marking the entrance to the Confederate Section was built in 1925 by the Southern Memorial Association. Lynchburg architect S. Preston Craighill designed the arch and specified "...good, clean rubble stone, with concrete center and... a good and sufficient foundation." Marsteller Marble and Granite Works of Lynchburg constructed the arch. The urns atop the posts were added two years later.

Restoration of the Arch in June, 1996, was a gift to the City of Lynchburg through the Southern Memorial Association. The following individuals and businesses contributed their time and talents to secure the memorial for future generations:

Parks H. Snead, Jr., Restoration Engineer • Coleman-Adams Construction, Inc., General Contractor • Reid Abbott, Masonry Contractor • J. Coleman Ltd. Construction, Masonry Sealant • Woodall & Lang, Inc., Lead Flashing • Dorothy L. Sigmon, Project Coordinator for Southern Memorial Association
