Historic California Posts, Camps, Stations and Airfields
Lincoln Radio Beacon Annex
The site is located in Placer County, California and is situated five miles west of Lincoln.
In 1957, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers acting for the U.S. Air Force acquired 0.87 fee acre from Floyd R. Bonniefield. The site was used by the U.S. Air Force as an off base installation to McClellan Air Force Base, California. A medium power low frequency homer beacon was used to serve as a navigational aid site for McClellan AFB. The site was declared in excess in 1965 and was reported by the Department of Defense to not be contaminated by live bombs, artillery, projectiles, chemical warfare or radioactive materials. In 1966, the 0.87 fee acre was conveyed to Lawrence W. Bonniefield.
The site has been used for agricultural purposes since U.S. Air Force use was terminated and is currently being used as cattle pasture.
