Eck presented the plaque, which reads as follows:

Rancho Camulos
has been designated a
National Historic Landmark

This residential complex possesses national significance in commemorating the history of the United States of America

Ygnacio del Valle established Rancho Camulos in 1853, on part of a Mexican land grant of former mission lands. Rancho Camulos was the setting for "Ramona," an 1884 novel that generated national interest in the history of Hispanic settlement in California. August Rubel purchased the property in 1924 and preserved the significant historic features of the site.
