Weed in Siskiyou County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Weed Arch
To the City of Weed from the People of Its Community
The Arch is the strongest form of architecture known to Man.
This steel arch replaces the original concrete arch first erected on this site in 1922. Due to the lack of maintenance over the years, surface cracks appeared. Because there were no blueprints of it the City felt it unsafe. The arch was torn down in 1963. It took over three weeks to remove by torch as the arch was built with steel railroad track throughout!
This landmark is our community's commitment in welcoming those who visit our area and establishes a physical symbol of our unity.
Humanity and camaderie identify those individuals, groups, businesses and service clubs whose vision and unselfish donations erected this monument.
