Cities throughout the southland cooperate in placement of Historic 395 signs to guide motorists and rallyists
Sunday, June 19th, 2011
Issue 24, Volume 15.



Traffic engineers from Riverside, Perris, San Marcos and Escondido are currently scrambling to put in place Historic Route 395 signs that will guide motor enthusiasts from northern and southern starting locations to Fallbrook’s historic Elder House in celebration of the first annual "Drive 395" fun run and rally. Organized by the Historic Route 395 Association and fueled by generous private donations that have now sponsored the ongoing placement of Historic Route 395 signs in five additional southland cities, Saturday’s rally will celebrate the June 30, 2008 signing of Assemblyman Kevin Jeffries’ Concurrent Resolution 98, authored by Rainbow resident Tom Casey.

Starting modestly between Spokane Washington and Canada in 1926 and then ambitiously being configured in 1932 as part of the International Pacific Highway System, the "Three Flags Highway" as it came to be called, was sponsored by the Automobile Club of Southern California in cooperation with the governments of Canada, the United States and Mexico to lead motorists along an inland route from Banff National Park to La Paz. Promoted as including some of the most majestic scenery in the west including Banff, Crater Lake, Lake Tahoe, Lassen’s volcanoes, Yosemite, Mono Lake, Mt. Whitney, Death Valley and Baja, the highway also directly passed through more civilized points of interest such as Riverside’s internationally acclaimed Mission Inn and San Diego’s Balboa Park.

In 1934, the California Division of Highways joined in, linking what ultimately became in the United States a 1,500 mile road that flowed through the hearts of many small local communities like Perris, Lake Elsinore, Murrieta, Temecula, Rainbow, Fallbrook, Bonsall, Vista, San Marcos and Escondido. And that is what Saturday is all about – taking a step back in time to forgo the Interstates and once again drive the old roads that proudly portray our history and still support our future.

Starting at 9 am in the north at the recently renovated 1945 era Perris Theater and in the south at Escondido’s equally iconic Centre City Café, rallyists will ride Historic Route 395 to Fallbrook’s Main Avenue, where they will be greeted at the historic Elder House (corner of Elder St. and Main Ave.) to an informal gathering of friends and family at 10 am, filled with fond remembrances, catered food, and the classic guitar riffs of Rock Mountain. The Historic Route 395 Association and their rallyists will meet at the Elder House to share in this historic event with a memorable time!
