The signboard is painted with a bright yellow, with the town’s name is written in deep blue. The landmark has made its place in the town’s character after it was restored in the 80’s.
- Beale Memorial Clock Tower was a gift to the city of Bakersfield, from an influential diplomat, as a way to memorialize his mother.

The tower was damaged in the earthquake in 1952 but reconstructed at a new location as the tower’s spirit was still intact.
