Duarte in Los Angeles County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Trails Restaurant
Unexpectedly, in 2001, owners Edith Brothers and Robert Basha announced the closing of their 50 year venture, claiming it to be a financial burden. Despite pleas by preservationists and Route 66 buffs, the furnishings were sold at auction and the structure demolished in 2002, paving the way for a housing development.
This plaque is sponsored by Bowden Development Inc. and the Duarte Historical Society commemorating The Trails, as one of Duarte's last Route 66 icons.
Erected by Bowden Development Inc. and the Duarte Historical Society.
