William & Elizabeth Campbell

About the Muralist
Dedication Date: November 23, 1996
Locaton: Break & Run Billiards

The Campbells came to Twentynine Palms in 1924 for WWI veteran Bill's health, pitching a tent at the Oasis of Mara before homesteading 160 acres. There, Bill and his wife, Elizabeth Crozier Campbell, built an exquisite home of native stone, now a B&B called Roughley Manor at Campbell Ranch. Aligned with the Southwest Museum of Los Angeles, the couple scoured this desert for artifacts, logging thousands of finds including the 7500-year-old Pinto Basin site in what is now Joshua Tree National Park. They also donated land for Twentynine Palms' first schoolhouse and for Luckie Park. This 14- by 80-foot mural was painted by Los Angeles artist Richard Wyatt at 74017 29 Palms Highway (Break & Run Billiards). Dedicated: November 23, 1996.
