DID YOU KNOW... that on December 24, 1814, the Treaty of Peace and Amity (Treaty of Ghent) was signed by his Britannic Majesty and the United States of America? This treaty established a firm and lasting peace for over 200 years.

 

On September 6, 1921, the international Peace Memorial (Peace Arch) was

dedicated to celebrate the centennial (1814 - 1914) of the signing of the treaty.

 

The preamble of the treaty states, “His Britannic Majesty and the United States of America, desirous of terminating the war which has unhappily subsisted between the two countries, and of restoring, upon principles of perfect reciprocity, peace, friendship, and good understanding between them,” there shall be a firm and universal peace.

 

The War of 1812 set us on the pathway to a peace that would lead to the creation and dedication of the Portal of Peace Memorial on the USA Canada Boundary between Washington State & British Columbia.  

 

Today, the InternationaL Peace Arch stands as an example of peace and a beacon of hope for all mankind, proclaiming that differences can be resolved through diplomacy, peaceful negotiation, and common sense. 

 

The Peace Arch continues to be a testament that, Peace, truly a gift for all Seasons.
