The Stuart Welcome Arch (also known as the 1926 Welcome Arch or Rio-Jensen Beach Arch) is an historic arch-shaped structure which straddles County Road 707 between 2369 and 2390 Northeast Dixie Highway in Jensen Beach, Florida. It was built in 1926 to mark what was then the town line between the town of Jensen to the north and the town of Stuart to the south. During the Great Depression, the town of Jensen went bankrupt and was dissolved, while the town (now City) of Stuart was forced to relinquish much of its territory north of the St. Lucie River. Today it is located entirely within the unincorporated area of Martin County. It has been restored several times over the years. On September 15, 2004, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
