With a large number of buildings dating to the earliest phases of Los Angeles’ development, Country Club Park is an intact residential district with distinct visual character. Constructed adjacent to the streetcar line that stretched along Pico Street (now Boulevard), the area was originally located at the western edge of the City and housed some of Los Angeles’ most prominent citizens. As the area matured in the 1920s boom years, vacant lots were fi lled by homes constructed in the latest architectural styles: Craftsman, Tudor Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, Colonial Revival and Mediterranean Revival. Despite some infi ll that occurred in the years following World War II, the area remains mostly intact. In addition to a large number of buildings dating to the first three decades of the twentieth century, the area retains other visual features that tie it to that era of residential development in Los Angeles. Mature street trees line the avenues, and broad lawns and landscaped parking strips front the residences in parts of the neighborhood.
