(ReliableNews.org) – In 2019, the town of Hillsborough, California filed a lawsuit against Florence Fang, the owner of the Flintstone House. The city said her home, which looks like the cartoon house belonging to Fred and Wilma Flintstone, was a “public nuisance.” Two years later, the town has finally settled.
According to a decision in April, which was under a gag order, Fang will be allowed to keep her statues and Flintstone landscaping. She is also allowed to apply for building permits. Hillsborough must also pay the homeowner $125,000. She then agreed to drop her countersuit against the city.

The lawsuit stemmed from Fang’s decision to erect statues of Fred, Wilma, Dino, the Great Gazoo, and others. The town said she had not received the proper permits to make the changes to her yard. A lawyer for the posh town filled with mansions called Fang’s property a “highly visible eyesore” that did not keep with “community standards.” At the time the city filed the suit, her grandson, Sean Fang, said his grandma would “fight to save the Flintstone House.”
That’s exactly what Fang did, and she won the battle. The Flintstones will be allowed to live in peace — and so will she.
Yabba dabba dooo!
