Brocton Arch is a historic "welcome arch" located at Brocton in Chautauqua County, New York. It is a freestanding steel arch bearing the community's name constructed in 1913 over a public thoroughfare. It is a rare double span, four way street arch.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1]

Beginning in 2012, the Arch was taken down for refurbishing. The Arch was put back up about a year later.
