Inscription.  Alphonse Motte and his brothers came to America from France in the late 1880's with an interest in sheep and agriculture. In the 1930's his oldest son John Victor partnered with brothers Frank and Charles to grow potatoes, onions, alfalfa and other grains in the Perris Valley. In 1960 John Victor established his own farming operation with his two sons, Leon and John, naming it Motte and Sons.
