Panel 1:

This bell marks a place along the original route of El Camino Real, "The Kings Highway", which connects the 21 missions from San Diego to Sonoma. Suspended from a pipe resembling a shepherd's staff, the first bell was erected in 1906, and by 1913 there were more than 450 at various locations along the 700 mile route throughout California. Donated by various civic organizations and individuals, the bells were first set in place by Mrs. A.S.C. Forbes, president of the El Camino Real Association.

Refurbished in 1985.
