When I was a little girl growing up on our Wisconsin farm we occupied time much differently than children living in the city. We walked to our two room grade school encompassing ourselves in nature, explored for wild flowers in our woods, camped out with our horse, and engaged in the domestic arts of cooking and sewing. One boring summer my time occupier was a thread and linen fabric stitchery project. The saying said:“Yours is the earth and everything in it.” When I decided the public, neighborhood and the city officials needed a better understanding about the history of about this magnificent, unique Hollywoodland Gifted Park Land, that simple saying came to mind.
This is our earth, we are the caretakers of it for the next generations to understand and embrace. I hope the facts and information I have gathered about Hollywoodland and her Gifted Park Land will generate a new respect and appreciation for the people that shaped her and cared for her. Hollywoodland and her Gifted park Land is a unique, historic and tranquil space in the center of a vibrant city. It is the adjacent 444 acres that makes living in Hollywoodland special.
