Fort Tejon Historical Park Preservation Project

Fort Tejon State Historic Park is on Interstate 5, near the town of Lebec, about 36 miles south of Bakersfield, CA and 77 miles north of Los Angeles.

Fort Tejon in California is a former United States Army outpost which was intermittently active from June 24, 1854, until September 11, 1864. It is located in the Grapevine Canyon between the San Emigdio Mountains and Tehachapi Mountains. It is in the area of Tejon Pass along Interstate 5, the main route through the mountain ranges separating the Central Valley from the Los Angeles Basin and Southern California. The fort’s location protected the San Joaquin Valley from the south and west.

The Bakersfield Sign, History & Restoration – 1999-2000

In the early 1930’s, Ernest Montoya, Sr., founder of BSW Roofing Contractors, Inc., worked as a laborer on the construction of the “Bakersfield Inn”. The “Bakersfield Inn” was destroyed by fire in the 1960’s and BSW Roofing Contractors, Inc. was hired to refurbish the damaged landmark.

When the famous “Bakersfield Inn Sign” was finally moved from Union Avenue (Hwy. 99) to its new location on Buck Owens Boulevard in 2000, BSW Roofing was there to install the new roofs of the two towers from which the restored “New Bakersfield Sign” is suspended.

To the new home, next to Buck Owens Chrystal Palace Museum & Theatre, the restored Bakersfield Sign has a new life. This landmark began in front of the Bakersfield Inn at Union Avenue in early 1950. BSW Roofing Contractors installed new tile on the two new towers in July 1999. Here are some photos of the restoration in progress.
