John H. Patterson, co-founder of the National Cash Register Company (NCR), donated the land to create Hills & Dales Park and hired world famous landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted, the architect responsible for Central Park in New York City to design the park, which opened in 1907. The monument to Patterson was built in 1928, six years after his death. For more information about the history of Hills & Dales MetroPark, visit history.metroparks.org/parks/hills-dales.
