WWII Practice Bombing Target

1944-1946 Naval Pilots based in Santa Rosa practiced dive bombing here as part of their final pre-combat training. They used Gualala Point Island, a prominent offshore land mass, to identify the target, which was in the vicinity of the large mound seen in the meadow about 50 yards from this spot.
