Our search for California Historical Landmarks began in February, 2014. While we were on a pilgrimage visiting the 21 California Missions, we began to notice the California State Plaques. After completing the Mission Trail at San Francisco de Solano, we decided to visit the 1100+ California Historical Landmarks.
Thanks to our son, Nicholas Delja, our California Historical Landmarks website is starting to take shape. We are currently populating each page with information. We will soon be adding pictures of the landmarks that we have visited.
Many thanks to the following websites for helping us locate landmarks up and down California:
