The gates are named in honour of John Weldon Power, councillor and solicitor, who was instrumental in negotiating the new site for the Wimmera Agricultural Society’s shows. They are of masonry with rendered relief mouldings in Federation Free style, with the main flattened arch surmounted by a pediment, and semi-circular side arches.

J. Weldon Power was President of the Horsham Agricultural Society for 13 successive years and legal advisor to the first wheat pool.
