Radio Forward Relay Station
US Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District History (1999)

Location: The site is located in Crestline, CA within San Bernardino County.

Site History: The Army Air Forces acquired 8.247 acres via a special use permit from the Department of Agriculture, U.S. Forest Service, on 19 November 1943. By November 1946, the site had expanded to 40 acres. The site was established as a radio forward relay station for the San Bernardino Army Air Field. The extent to which military improvements were constructed on the site is unknown. The site is not identified on a 1949 Real Estate Map for Norton AFB (previously known as San Bernardino Army Air Field) so it is assumed that the permit was terminated some time prior to that year. There are no known military improvements remaining at the site. The site is owned by the U.S. Forest Service and part of the San Bernardino National Forest. The Crestline Village Water District has erected a storage tank on the property and the County of San Bernardino has a building housing communication equipment.
