Inscription.  This structure was built in 1930 to provide access to a pocket beach for the Dana Point Inn, intended to be built above on the bluff's edge. The doorway provided entry for a 165-foot-long tunnel to an elevator, which was to take guests 135 feet to the hotel lobby. The project was abandoned due to the 1929 stock market crash. Remnants of the hotel arches remain above.
 
Erected 2016 by Orange County Board of Supervisors, Orange County Historical Commission. (Marker Number 53.)
