Part of the "Memory Necklace"
—A Series of Historical Panels Located in the Hilltop Loop Trail —The ascent of Signal Hill (elevation 364 feet) was not just a fantasy for automobile drivers of the early 1920s. In January 1921, the Long Beach Daily Telegram advertised an upcoming effort by a Dodge touring car to climb "The Hill's" 70% grade. Thousands of people turned out for the demonstration and cheered the car as it crashed through the Dodge brothers' paper emblem at the top of the hill.
