Hollywood Beginnings

In the 1800s, what is now the Sunset Strip was the road that connects downtown, El Pueblo de Los Angeles, and all ranches westward to the ocean. In 1886, H. H. Wilcox bought an area of Rancho La Brea that his wife then christened "Hollywood." Wilcox sold Hollywood real estate to wealthy Midwesterners seeking refuge from harsh winters. Prospect Avenue soon became a prestigious residential street populated with large Queen Anne, Victorian, and Mission Revival houses.

The Hollywood community incorporated in 1903, but water shortages forced annexation in 1910 to the city of Los Angeles, which had a surplus. In 1911, the Nestor Company opened Hollywood's first film studio. Surrounding communities such as Laurel Canyon quickly became the oasis for the rich and famous Hollywood film industry. Before long, banks, restaurants, clubs, and movie palaces sprang up, catering to the demands of the burgeoning film industry.
