Inscription. Journalist Merriman Smith, riding in the motorcade five cars behind President Kennedy reported seeing Dallas Police run up this hill, which he called a grassy knoll. Some witnesses believed shots came from the knoll area, but police found no evidence of a gunman. The wooden stockade fence at the top, rebuilt several times since 1963, is a reproduction of the original fence.
