Bethesda Arch Marker  


This brick pillar represents the remnants of the former Bethesda Arch that was erected in 1940 as part of Bethesda's 200th anniversary celebration. The original arch, designed by Hugh Tallant and funded in part by the Trustee's Garden Club, was badly damaged in July 2004 and ultimately demolished. The new adjacent archway into Bethesda was dedicated April 22, 2006.
