State Plaque


As of October 2014, the plaque is on display inside the Visitor Center, about 2 miles south of the historic district at the Moro Canyon entrance of Crystal Cove State Park. Viewing is obviously limited to hours of operation. There may be plans to mount the plaque somewhere more accessible in the future.

From the Plaque:

The early to mid-twentieth century cottages in this last self-contained Southern California beachfront recreational community reflect a unique vernacular architectural design emblematic of "architecture without architects."

Registered November 8, 2013. Plaque placed by California State Parks in cooperation with the Crystal Cove Alliance. Dedicated 2014, the 150th anniversary of California State Parks.
