This arch was presented by the 1927 graduating class of First District A&M College (now Arkansas State University) in Jonesboro (Craighead County). The arch marked the entrance to the schools original administration building, which was destroyed by fire in 1931. By the 1970s, it was overgrown with vines, and few knew what lay underneath. However, in the 1980s, the vegetation was removed, and the arch once again became a campus landmark.
