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. (Source: https://hollywoodsign.org/the-history-of-the-sign/)
