On August 15, 1958, the Chamber and City unveiled eight stars on Hollywood Blvd. at Highland Avenue to create excitement and to demonstrate what the Walk of Fame would look like.

Every property owner along Hollywood Boulevard was required to pay an assessment. This did not sit well with all the property owners who were hit by the special...
