Approximately two years ago, M. Isabel Grant Hill approached Gerald Strickfaden, chair of the Fuller Lodge Historic Districts Advisory Board (FLHDAB), and asked him how she could get a marker at Guaje Pines Cemetery to commemorate the site of her family’s homestead.
That sparked the board to launch an initiative to commemorate all the historic homestead sites. The county council approved the Los Alamos Historic Homestead Tour in August, 2010.
The first marker was installed during a small ceremony Thursday morning at the site where Grant Hill’s father, Ottie Oman Grant, homesteaded.
“I’m very excited, very honored,” Grant Hill said. “I’m very thankful to the county for doing this.”
