Statue of Amelia Earhart - North Hollywood Park - Photo by Gerald Fecht - Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley - 2008
One great way to begin your exploration of the NoHo Historic District is a visit to the recast sculpture of the great Amelia Earhart by Ernest Shelton. Amelia lived with her husband George Putnam in North Hollywood, during the years of some of her greatest adventures. The leaders of North Hollywood, working with the Community Redevelopment Agency, City Councilman Tom LaBonge and other Valley activists saw to the restoration and recasting of this magnificent sculpture.
