In the mid-1930s, Will Rogers was one of the most popular and highest paid actors in Hollywood and "America's most beloved citizen." From his start in vaudeville theater with a trick roping act, he rose to world-wide fame as a columnist, "cowboy philosopher", aviation enthusiast, philanthropist, radio personality, and movie star. During the 1920s, he bought land in Santa Monica, where he developed a ranch and spent time relaxing with family and friends. After his death in 1935, his widow donated the ranch to the state of California and it became a State Historic Park named in his honor. There are many activities available, including hiking the Inspiration Point Loop Trail, where this box can be found.
