Keep History in Mind
Letter to the Los Angeles Times in Response to an Article Entitled
"They Want This Place to Stay Put" Feb. 8, 2008
The Weddington House belongs in North Hollywood, as one of the last vestiges of the San Fernando Valley/s early farming community. It should form a historic district with the 1895 train station, the North Hollywood Library and the Fire Station, all of which stand on land formerly owned by the Weddingtons.
Guy Weddington McCreary's pledge of $100,000 if it remains in North Hollywood would provide much security, restoration and upkeep, something that Heritage Square can't match. We in North Hollywood, Toluca Lake and Studio City are passionate about preserving our history and buildings where they are, and using the Weddington House as the home for a museum of the San Fernando Valley."
