Rex Clark, owner of the Norconian Resort, sought to draw attention to his resort by building a 38-feet tall lighthouse with a powerful revolving light atop the hill. That beacon gave the name to that hill known today as Beacon Hill but once known as Chocolate Drop Mountain, near what is now the town center of Norco.
