1. Tehachapi Hospital Marker
Inscription.  Originally built by Jean Capdeville as a rooming house, it was later sold to Drs. Madge and Harold Schlotthauer in 1934. It was then used as a hospital until the 1952 earthquake. Although badly damaged, no lives were lost in the hospital. The large trees were planted before the Capdevilles built the rooming house. When the Schlotthauers rebuilt the hospital after the earthquake, they stipulated that the trees were not to be cut down.
