Changes to note:

Note location of current 5th hole. Olmsted asked Roberts and Mackenzie if hole could be built east of planned corridor to facilitate housing.
"Both Dr. Mackenzie and Jones were unwilling to change the proposed line of #5 hole which will practically prevent any use of the wooded slope
between #5 and #6 for house sites."
-- William Bell Marquis, Olmsted Brothers, trip report Oct 4-7-1931
