THANKS CAMPO DE CAHUENGA

Special thanks from the Museum Community to the leaders and members of the Friends of Campo de Cahuenga Memorial Society for protecting Southern California's most important historical site. We salute Deuk Perrin and his courageous board for making sure that the integrity of the place where America's Manifest Destiny come to completion is not compromised.
THANKS CAMPO DE CAHUENGA!

Mrs. Armitage Forbes, founder of the Friends of Campo de Cahuenga Memorial Association, was also the woman who began the American custom of laying wreaths of flowers on the ocean in memory of those who died at sea defending our nation. Mrs. Forbes' vision of a California that cherishes its history continues in 2009 through the Memorial Association she helped to create.
