Inglewood erected a monument, plaque, and statue on November 25th, 1939 to a dog, a collie, named Penelope, although it went by Rex for some reason. For over thirteen years, Penelope faithfully followed the local mail carrier around every day along his route, Route 15. Due to popular appeal from citizens and various friends of animals, this monument with a small fountain, was placed in the grass median on the street in front of the post office. You can easily park in front of the post office, and cross part of the street to the middle area to check out the statue.
