Long Description:
The plaque says, "Writer George Wharton James concluded that Southern California's climate invited residents into the open. Throughout its entire history, Anaheim has proven James correct. In period photographs, hand pumps shared backyards with swings while chicken coops competed for space with horse barns. Windmills, in a variety of shapes caught breezes bred over the Pacific Ocean to pump water gathered below. Just as the interiors of the houses in Founder's Park illustrated indoor life, the backyards reassembled here reminded visitors that California's, then as well as now, extended their home life out of doors."
