Hollywood Grove

Hollywood Grove Streetscape

Hollywood Grove is a small neighborhood comprised of Turn-of-the-20th-Century houses in the foothills of the Hollywood Hills. The neighborhood, a collection of Craftsman and American Colonial Revival bungalows (with noticeable number of Period Revival houses as well), stands out as a strong indication of what a typical residential subdivision once looked like in the Hollywood community. Wide front yards with lush landscaping, front porches that embrace the sun, and views of rolling mountains and the ubiquitous Hollywood Sign make this former avocado grove an indelible part of Los Angeles’ history.

We are currently working to have a 5-member HPOZ Board appointed for the Hollywood Grove HPOZ. Candidates should have experience in construction, real estate, architecture, and/or historic preservation. Residents of the district and property owners with an interest and/or background in Preservation are encouraged to apply. Interested parties should email a cover letter and resume in PDF format to Naomi Guth.

Hollywood Grove Survey Map forthcoming
