"Blue Star Memorial Higway~" Boron Off The Beaten Path Tip by Yaqui

Boron Off The Beaten Path: 4 reviews and 13 photos

After World War II, a nationwide movement was started to pay tribute to the nation's armed forces, by designating various State and national routes as "Blue Star Memorial Highways." In 1945, the National Council of State Garden Clubs, Inc. approved the Blue Star Memorial Highway Marker program. California Garden Clubs, Inc. accepted the program in 1947.

This one is on Hwy 58 at the newly renovated rest stop just west of Boron.
