Norco Benchmark (missing)

From the city of Norco website:
"Norco was essentially in “the middle of nowhere,” so Rex Clark sought to draw attention to his remote community. Atop a hill near the town center—known today as Beacon Hill but once known as Chocolate Drop Mountain—he built a 38-feet tall lighthouse with a powerful revolving light that pulsated like the North Star in the night and became the symbol of Norco. Today, the foundation of the lighthouse remains intact, and the Historical Society displays the revolving light in its museum" Ironically, Beacon Hill is now a dark hill surrounded by a sea of lights.
