Across the street from the post office in the city of Cholame, CA, there is a memorial in tribute to the late actor, James Dean. Constructed in 1977 in Japan, the structure is a concrete and steel memorial around a ailanthus tree.

The original Highway 41 and 46 junction where the accident occurred is now a pasture, and the two roadways were realigned to make the intersection safer. The accident site is about 900 yards east of the memorial.
