The entire San Fernando Valley, and places far beyond, owe Diane and Guy Weddington McCreary a large vote of thanks for their never-tiring efforts to save the historical treasures of our community. Their work to save the historic Lankershim Train Station from disappearing into a bureaucratic radar screen means that future generations may yet get to know the vital role railroads have played in our history. Secondly, the preservation and moving of the priceless Weddington House to a safe place in North Hollywood, will be directly a result of their efforts.
So, when we are thinking of our Valley, and those to we owe thanks, let's make sure to include the McCrearys. The Museum's 2nd Annual "Walk It Off" walking tour of historic North Hollywood will begin the Saturday after Thanksgiving at the Amerlia Earhart statue in North Hollywood Park - erected and preserved, in large measure, because of Guy Weddington McCreary and Diane McCreary.
For all that you have done and are doing, our Museum Community is grateful.
