One of the most famous landmark signs in the world is “The HOLLYWOOD Sign” on Mt. Lee in Los Angeles, California. The original 50-foot high letters were erected in 1923 and originally read HOLLYWOODLAND to advertise a nearby housing development. Mule teams and tractors were used to help haul the panels up the steep grade. The sign quickly became a tourist attraction that epitomized Hollywood glamor. In 1978 Hugh Hefner threw a lavish fundraiser at The Playboy Mansion to raise funds to rebuild the sign with famous folks sponsoring letters at $27,500 a piece. The original sign was rebuilt, this time using helicopters to place the four-story high steel-encased letters. The Hollywood Sign Trust, a chartered non-profit organization, preserves the iconic landmark sign for generations to come.
While landmark signs in your city may not be as famous as The HOLLYWOOD Sign, pylon signs have the potential to tell their own unique story and become a local landmark.
