California Historical Landmark #983

While I was working in the control center on the EPIC electronic medical record go-live in Santa Cruz, I walked along the boardwalk looking for this waymark.

California Historical Marker #983

A local landmark since 1907, this boardwalk was one of the first amusement parks in California. It is now the only oceanside amusement park operating on the West Coast. The boardwalk is the site of two rare attractions, the 1911 carousel and the 1924 Giant Dipper roller coaster. Both were manufactured by members of the Looff family, some of the nation's earliest and most prominent makers of amusement rides.
