Visitors to the History Center lately have probably delighted in viewing the many historic signs hanging from its outside walls. Projects like this can be challenging but are rewarding when visitors give us positive feedback. Or not: some have pointedly asked: “What is that McDonald’s Coming Soon sign doing up there??”
The answer to this question was so intriguing that there was an article published in the April 15, 2021 Carmel Pine Cone that told the real story of why the sign was first put up in the Village and why. It then became even more interesting when a follow-up article was published in the April 29 Pine Cone after one of the original perpetrators fessed up to their trickery – both articles are worth a look and are linked to below.
