The marker is embedded in the ground in front of a small Lincoln Highway monument, which is sited directly in front of the Alvarado Adobe Museum. The Alvarado Adobe is California Historical Landmark No. 512, which is why this page is included in the California Historical Landmark series. There is, however, no historical marker for the adobe visible in the vicinity.
