History of Hollywood Heights / Santa Monica

Previously the site of a dairy farm, residential development began in Hollywood Heights in the early 1920s when developer J.B. Salmon formed the Hollywood Land Company and began building mostly Tudor-style cottages in the neighborhood. Many of the Tudors are accented with stonework which provides a unique Texas twist to the European Tudor-style architecture. According to the neighborhood association, Hollywood Heights may be the largest collection of intact Tudor-style homes with this type of unique architecture in the United States. The neighborhood considers itself founded in 1924 and has been designated a conservation district since 1989.
