Davis Field entrance or the "C" Gate is a simple structure built with a symbolic and utilitarian purpose in mind. It consists of four square pillars arranged so that the two largest form the main entry and are in turn flanked by the two smaller pillars forming a secondary entrance and egress from the field. The main pillars are both hollow to house the ticket booth function and constructed of rough cement stone blocks, and are capped by a large pediment surmounted by a metal eagle with wings extended. The smaller two pillars are of similar construction but not connected by the cement overhead between the main pillars.
