0009-1.jpg
  • Across from Rodeway Inn on Coast Highway in Oceanside CA
  • Created 1978, dedicated 1982

Quote on the structure attributed to Lorraine Shaffer:

"The welcoming Arches were conceived from a wish that Oceanside's visitors receive a welcome reflecting the beauty, bounty and heritage of this area.

Realizing where there is privilege there is also obligation, this entrance edifice was built by the voluntary generosity of the people of Oceanside"
