Historic North Hollywood Tour

Best Walking Tour, May 2013

The Museum of the San Fernando Valley is still at the idea stage. For now there’s the Historic North Hollywood Tour. Meet at the statue of Amelia Earhart (a onetime Valley resident) at the North Hollywood Recreation Center, where historian Richard Hilton leads walkers on a two-and-a-half-hour trip replete with tales of long-gone ranchers (Lankershim was a busy guy). The brochure alone—filled with archival photos taken by the Weddingtons, one of the region’s most influential families—is worth the trip.
