Griffith Park History

I'm Interested in Your Recollections

Fast Fact: The Griffith Observatory's three domes
are pure copper. When they were new, they gleamed
like shiny new pennies.

Do you recall the Rodger Young Village? Did you visit the park during World War II? Are you a long-time hiker who saw the beginnings of Captain's Roost? If you have these or other Griffith Park memories, I'd like to hear about them. Please write to me at Mike Eberts, Glendale Community College, 1500 N. Verdugo Road, Glendale, CA 91208, call me at (818)240-1000 x5352 or send me e-mail at

Here are some of the stories that I've received.
