Save the World's First Taco Bell - #SaveTacoBell
The world's first Taco Bell was built in 1962 by founder Glenn Bell in Downey, CA. The original building at 7112 Firestone Blvd. still stands, but not for long if we don't convince the Taco Bell Corporation or someone else to save it from the imminent threat of demolition. Please sign this petition and help show Taco Bell that there is public support for the preservation of this historic and culturally significant building. You can also help by tweeting #SaveTacoBell and contacting Taco Bell Corporate. The Downey Conservancy is a "community-based organization dedicated to promoting and supporting the preservation of the culturally and historically significant resources of the City of Downey." In addition to being the home of the world's first Taco Bell, Downey also lays claim to the oldest operating McDonald's, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
