In our February 2022 E-Magazine issue, we featured an item from Ebell Historian Phyllis Hansen about the Campo de Cahuenga and its ties with The Ebell. As a postscript, here is a photo of a memorial plaque naming The Ebell Club that appears on the grounds of the Campo de Cahuenga historic site in Studio City. Our club, in its early days, helped fund this memorial and represents our organizational outreach into the community for worthwhile projects.
The Campo is considered the birthplace of modern California, and much of its history, like ours, is centered around several generations of strong, capable women, several with ties to our club.
