Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Off Lemon Avenue, Hillcrest Park became a popular hang-out for students. This photo shows a couple sitting and standing near the brickwork leading to the entrance to the Isaac Walton Cabin in 1940. All of the stonework in the park was hand-made by unemployed laborers hired by WPA funds. At the beginning of the Depression, many of the park workers actually camped out on the grounds because they could not afford housing.
