July 21 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm


Please join the Tulare County Historical Society for the unveiling and dedication of its latest historic marker. The event will take place at the base of the lookout – no need to climb the stairs! The gathering will start at 11:30am, and the event will formally commence at noon. There will be a short program followed by refreshments and tours of the lookout. Docents, dignitaries and Smokey Bear will be on hand to provide information and entertainment. We invite you to pack a picnic lunch to enjoy after the ceremony. Be prepared for changeable mountain weather, carpooling is appreciated.
