Rosedale Memorial Arch, Kansas City, KS

The Rosedale Arch is one monument that has a nice location, one that has a great view of the Kansas City skyline.  It can also be seen from I-35, the 35th Division Memorial Highway, and probably more so now that the leaves are falling from the trees.

This link goes to a page that has a pretty good description of the arch, so instead of repeating the story:
