California Landmarks

California’s many landmarks are the inspiration for Landmarks California:  the Places of Our Diverse Cultures and Histories.    These places mark the land and remind us of the stories of the many groups of people who have contributed to the development of California.  The California Cultural and Historical Endowment (CCHE) has funded the restoration of just a handful of California’s cultural and historical resources and we feature several of those here.  The remainder can be found at www.californiastreasures.org and in the book Preserving California’s Treasures.
