The Arch, 2010

The lovely stone-faced arch that bends over the 9th Avenue entrance to downtown is, like the Clock Tower nearby, a recreation of a beloved Cranbrook landmark. More accurately, it nods to the two stone arches that once marked the north-east and south-west city limits. They were built in the 1930s as a make-work project during the Great Depression. But the city limits expanded and, in the late 1950s, the provincial government toppled them in order to widen Highway 3. The recreated arch is a revitalization project driven by the Downtown Business Association. 

It's wider than the originals and contains a time capsule to be opened in 2055, Cranbrook's 150th anniversary.
