On March 5, 1946, at Westminster College in Fulton, MO, Winston Churchill delivered his renowned "Iron Curtain" Speech. Allen P. Green built this gate in anticipation of a visit to his home by the former British Prime Minister and President Harry S. Truman. Logistical problems, however, prevented their making the visit, but the gate was preserved and became known as the "Churchill Gate"
