Coon Hollow

Alan Hopkins

I'd like to straighten out a miss understanding about the name "Racoon Hollow" in Golden Gate Park the name is actually Coon Hollow. The site was named for Mayor Henry Perrin Coon (1822-1884) who was an early supporter of the park's creation. I know that there signage calling the area Racoon Hollow. I don't know if this was a formal change or just someone's thought to be PC.
