Biggest Little City
The Willits Arch originally served Reno, Nevada for about twenty years. When a notoriously intrepid and Willits-boostering citizen discovered the cast-off sign while on vacation to that storied resort town, he set in motion a community project that culminated in 1995 with the emplacement of this reworked landmark. Many travelers have no greater memory of this town than the arch, as they trek to the redwood forest parks to the north. It's also something to look at when rush hour traffic slows to a crawl, squeezing through the eye of the needle.
