In the early 1900's Mission Bell markers were placed along El Camino Real to remind people of California's early pioneer history. In the 1700's Spanish missionaries established outposts in California along "The Royal Road of The King," (in honor of the King of Spain). As California has grown, many of these markers were damaged, lost or stolen. In the fall of 2012, Caltrans restored and replaced the markers along the historic highway.
