Inscription.  The town of Pinacate, named for the surrounding mining district, began here in 1882 on the new California Southern Railroad. When the land title became clouded, the railroad moved the siding 2 miles north among new agricultural settlers, starting the town of Perris in 1885. Pinacate faded away, but two buildings remained when the Orange Empire Railway Museum took over the site in 1958.
 
Erected by County of Riverside. (Marker Number 53.)
