Wrigley Memorial
Santa Catalina Island

The Wrigley Memorial, at the upper end of the Botanic Garden was built with as much local material as possible in a Spanish style of early California with red tile roof and colorful hand made tiles. The building contains stone quarried from the island including the concrete which was sandblasted to expose the native crushed stone. Blue flagstone rock on the ramps and terraces come from Little Harbor, on Catalina. The marble inside the tower was quarried in Georgia. The memorial was built in 1933-1934 by the Chicago firm of Bennett, Parson and Frost, a builder to many cities large and small and credited many notable landmarks.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
