A monument to Robert Holland, Sr. was placed in Holland Park 40 years ago on August 7, 1976.

The text on the plate reads:  Holland Park, Dedicated August 7, 1976.  To honor the memory of Robert Holland, Sr., City Councilman 1966-1974.

“He dealt with the physical West Ward in this City in order that others were free to deal with the psychological West Wards in their minds.”

This monument is located within the circular sidewalk in Holland Park, which can be seen in the post about Holland Park. Click here to see the Holland Park post.
