Restoring the ornate black wrought iron Marina Arch at the Marina Circle.

Marina Arch

The ornate black wrought iron Marina Arch at the Marina Circle (not the Perry Memorial Arch) on the University of Bridgeport campus will temporarily be removed at approximately 11:15 a.m. on Thursday, February 28, to undergo a minor restoration. The preservation of this historical landmark that was originally in front of Marina, PT Barnum’s mansion (now the location of Marina Dining Hall), will both refresh its elegant design and ensure its sustainability for future generations of UB students to come. The arch will make its return to campus later this spring.
