Description:

Gateway to Simonton house built 1776. This gate, now standing in Legare Street, is a splendid and artistic criterion of the iron work of the early 10th century. It once stood at the entrance of the old guard house on the site of the present Post Office, and because of the beautifully tapered blades at its waist on each door is called the "Sword Gate."
