I've gotten a few comments over the years about some inaccuracies on this page. Here they are:

Marilee - " The library we used was a few blocks away and is now the McHenry Museum and it sits across the street from the Modesto Bee building."

Steve - "the library that GL would have been at is now a museum a few blocks away across from the mchenry mansion"

Steve - " the library and hospital pictured were built in the seventies. the correct hospital is over on scenic drive"
