Victory Arch

The arch is the oldest WWI monument in the nation. Following the end of the Great World War (WWI) the citizens of the Ninth Ward of New Orleans erected a “Victory Arch.” The carved stone arch, reminiscent of the ancient triumphal arches of the Roman Empire, was originally located in the center of McCarty Square, bounded by Alvar, N. Rampart, Pauline and Burgundy Streets. In 1951 it was moved to the edge of the square near Burgundy Street, where it remains today. A 1919 newspaper article tells the story of the monument.

Cleaning with care

Our team of volunteers use the proper materials and tools to clean each monument’s unique surface. We use National Park Service methods and products for all of our cleaning projects.

Winston Churchill

The 9-foot-tall statue of Sir Winston Churchill sits at the location between Hilton New Orleans Riverside and the World Trade Center.  It was unveiled in 1977, soon after the Hilton opened. The traffic circle there was dedicated as British Plaza.  Both the statue and plaza were gifts of the hotel’s developers, including James Coleman, Jr., honorary British Consul for Louisiana at the time.
