More about this marker. Longtime Clampers and local historians, Ed & Don Rezes, borrowed the Billy Holcomb Chapter wooden forms for the concrete monument in order to assist the Fontana Historical Society in the creation of these two plaques. Although the National Register Plaque had been cased and dedicated on May 9, 1986, it was not permanently erected until 1994.
