Interesting place of the day


Discovery Well Park
Signal Hill, California
5 October 2013

Back in the 1920s, the Alamitos #1 well struck oil on Signal Hill, leading to the discovery of the Long Beach oilfield. There is still an active operation on the hill.

We discovered the park quite by accident because the daughter was filming in Signal Hill today. The spouse knew of the geological significance of the area, but I happened to see the park on the map while we were trying to get the daughter where she needed to be. We didn't have time to hike around the area, but what we saw was plenty interesting.
