1. Stonemason T.T. Perry Marker
Inscription. Stonemason T.T. Perry arrived in Santa Anna about 1890 and, using the rock from the twin peaks above the town, helped carve the history of the town in stone. Perry fashioned many of the landmark buildings in Santa Ann where he worked and was buried after his death in 1943.
     All these stones except the Santana Stone were found at the home of one of Perry’s daughters. This home was later owned by the Richard Bass family, which generously donated the stones for all to enjoy.
