historic site

i had no idea that pasadena was the final destination of the first transcontinental flight until i found this plaque marking the location. interesting then that our public information officer's weekly mystery history lesson turned out to be about this very event! visit ann's site every monday for more mystery history and a chance to win a prize.

you can click on the image to get a full sized picture and read the fine print.

I'm glad you were able to find it! It's hiding in plain sight, as the saying goes.

As for the Mystery History contest on my blog, it's every Tuesday for the photo and every Thursday for the big reveal!
