Fred and Nellie Stimson of Seattle’s Queen Anne Hill built this house in 1911 as a summer home after Fred had purchased 200 acres along the Squak Slough. He soon built several greenhouses where his wife Nellie grew carnations and roses for her Seattle floral shop. Fred had developed an interest in cattle raising and began breeding Holstein-Friesian cattle. Hollywood Farm soon would become famous for fresh flowers and cattle. By 1918 the Stimsons would consider Hollywood their primary residence with visits to an apartment in Seattle after selling the Highlands home. The Hollywood was designated a King County Landmark in 1983 and then reassigned as City of Woodinville Landmark in 1992. Hollywood Farm was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
