Hollywood
Hollywood
(/ˈhɒliwʊd/ HOL-ee-wuud) is a neighborhood in the central region of Los Angeles, California. This densely populated neighborhood is notable as the home of the U.S. film industry, including several of its historic studios, and its name has come to be a shorthand reference for the industry and the people associated with it. Hollywood
Hollywood
was a small community in 1870 and was incorporated as a municipality in 1903.[4][5] It was consolidated with the city of Los Angeles in 1910, and soon thereafter a prominent film industry emerged, eventually becoming the most recognizable film industry in the world.[6][7]

History[edit] Early history and development[edit] In 1853, one adobe hut stood in Nopalera ( Nopal
Nopal
field), named for the Mexican Nopal
Nopal
cactus indigenous to the area. By 1870, an agricultural community flourished. The area was known as the Cahuenga Valley, after the pass in the Santa Monica Mountains
Santa Monica Mountains
immediately to the north. According to the diary of H. J. Whitley, known as the "Father of Hollywood," on his honeymoon in 1886 he stood at the top of the hill looking out over the valley. Along came a Chinese man in a wagon carrying wood. The man got out of the wagon and bowed. The Chinese man was asked what he was doing and replied, "I holly-wood," meaning 'hauling wood.' H. J. Whitley had an epiphany and decided to name his new town Hollywood. "Holly" would represent England and "wood" would represent his Scottish heritage. Whitley had already started over 100 towns across the western United States.[8][9]

and Development Company. Highland Avenue runs through the center of the property. The square at the lower right hand corner is the Whitley Estate and was not part of the Grand View development.

Whitley arranged to buy the 480 acres (190 ha) E.C. Hurd ranch. They agreed on a price and shook hands on the deal. Whitley shared his plans for the new town with General Harrison Gray Otis, publisher of the Los Angeles
Los Angeles
Times, and Ivar Weid, a prominent businessman in the area.

Glen-Holly Hotel, first hotel in Hollywood, at the corner of what is now called Yucca Street. It was built in the 1890s.

Daeida Wilcox learned of the name Hollywood
Hollywood
from Ivar Weid, her neighbor in Holly Canyon (now Lake Hollywood) and a prominent investor and friend of Whitley's.[10][11] She recommended the same name to her husband, Harvey. H. Wilcox who had purchased 120 acres on February 1, 1887. It wasn't until August 1887 Wilcox decided to use that name and filed with the Los Angeles
Los Angeles
County Recorder's office on a deed and parcel map of the property. The early real-estate boom busted at the end of that year. By 1900, the region had a post office, newspaper, hotel, and two markets. Los Angeles, with a population of 102,479 lay 10 miles (16 km) east through the vineyards, barley fields, and citrus groves. A single-track streetcar line ran down the middle of Prospect Avenue from it, but service was infrequent and the trip took two hours. The old citrus fruit-packing house was converted into a livery stable, improving transportation for the inhabitants of Hollywood.

The Hollywood Hotel
Hollywood Hotel
was opened in 1902 by H. J. Whitley who was a president of the Los Pacific Boulevard
Boulevard
and Development Company. Having finally acquired the Hurd ranch and subdivided it, Whitley built the hotel to attract land buyers. Flanking the west side of Highland Avenue, the structure fronted on Prospect Avenue, which, still a dusty, unpaved road, was regularly graded and graveled. The hotel was to become internationally known and was the center of the civic and social life and home of the stars for many years.[12] Whitley's company developed and sold one of the early residential areas, the Ocean View Tract.[13] Whitley did much to promote the area. He paid thousands of dollars for electric lighting, including bringing electricity and building a bank, as well as a road into the Cahuenga Pass. The lighting ran for several blocks down Prospect Avenue. Whitley's land was centered on Highland Avenue.[14][15] His 1918 development, Whitley Heights, was named for him. Incorporation and merger[edit] Hollywood
Hollywood
was incorporated as a municipality on November 14, 1903, by a vote of 88 for and 77 against. On January 30, 1904, the voters in Hollywood
Hollywood
decided, by a vote of 113 to 96, for the banishment of liquor in the city, except when it was being sold for medicinal purposes. Neither hotels nor restaurants were allowed to serve wine or liquor before or after meals.[16] In 1910, the city voted for merger with Los Angeles
Los Angeles
in order to secure an adequate water supply and to gain access to the L.A. sewer system. With annexation, the name of Prospect Avenue changed to Hollywood Boulevard
Boulevard
and all the street numbers were also changed.[17] Motion picture industry[edit] Main article: Cinema of the United States

Nestor Studio, Hollywood's first movie studio, 1912

By 1912, major motion-picture companies had set up production near or in Los Angeles.[18] In the early 1900s, most motion picture patents were held by Thomas Edison's Motion Picture Patents Company
Motion Picture Patents Company
in New Jersey, and filmmakers were often sued to stop their productions. To escape this, filmmakers began moving out west, where Edison's patents could not be enforced.[19] Also, the weather was ideal and there was quick access to various settings. Los Angeles
Los Angeles
became the capital of the film industry.[20]

Hollywood
Hollywood
movie studios, 1922

Director D. W. Griffith
D. W. Griffith
was the first to make a motion picture in Hollywood. His 17-minute short film In Old California
California
(1910) was filmed for the Biograph Company.[21][22][23] Although Hollywood
Hollywood
banned movie theaters—of which it had none—before annexation that year, Los Angeles
Los Angeles
had no such restriction.[24] The first film by a Hollywood studio, Nestor Motion Picture Company, was shot on October 26, 1911.[25] The H. J. Whitley home was used as its set, and the unnamed movie was filmed in the middle of their groves at the corner of Whitley Avenue and Hollywood
Hollywood
Boulevard.[26][27] The first studio in Hollywood, the Nestor Company, was established by the New Jersey–based Centaur Company in a roadhouse at 6121 Sunset Boulevard
Boulevard
(the corner of Gower), in October 1911.[28] Four major film companies – Paramount, Warner Bros., RKO, and Columbia – had studios in Hollywood, as did several minor companies and rental studios. In the 1920s, Hollywood
Hollywood
was the fifth-largest industry in the nation.[20] Hollywood
Hollywood
became known as Tinseltown[2] because of the glittering image of the movie industry. Hollywood
Hollywood
has since become a major center for film study in the United States. Development[edit]

In 1923, a large sign, reading HOLLYWOODLAND, was erected in the Hollywood
Hollywood
Hills. Its purpose was to advertise a housing development. In 1949, the Hollywood
Hollywood
Chamber of Commerce entered a contract with the City of Los Angeles
Los Angeles
to repair and rebuild the sign. The agreement stipulated that "LAND" be removed to spell "HOLLYWOOD" so the sign would now refer to the district, rather than the housing development.[29] During the early 1950s, the Hollywood Freeway
Hollywood Freeway
was constructed through the northeast corner of Hollywood. The Capitol Records Building
Capitol Records Building
on Vine Street, just north of Hollywood Boulevard, was built in 1956, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Hollywood Walk of Fame
was created in 1958 as a tribute to artists and other significant contributors to the entertainment industry. The official opening was on February 8, 1960.[30][31][32] The Hollywood Boulevard
Hollywood Boulevard
Commercial and Entertainment District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places
National Register of Historic Places
in 1985. In June 1999, the Hollywood
Hollywood
extension of the Los Angeles
Los Angeles
County Metro Rail Red Line subway opened from Downtown Los Angeles
Los Angeles
to the San Fernando Valley, with stops along Hollywood Boulevard
Hollywood Boulevard
at Western Avenue (Hollywood/Western Metro station), Vine Street
Vine Street
(Hollywood/Vine Metro station), and Highland Avenue (Hollywood/Highland Metro station). The Dolby Theatre, which opened in 2001 as the Kodak Theatre at the Hollywood
Hollywood
& Highland Center mall, is the home of the Oscars. The mall is located where the historic Hollywood Hotel
Hollywood Hotel
once stood. Revitalization[edit]

This section needs expansion with: ongoing revitalization supported by city but various neighborhood groups opposed to dense development have won several major court victories. You can help by adding to it. (May 2015)

After years of serious decline in the 1980s, many Hollywood
Hollywood
landmarks were threatened with demolition.[33] Columbia Square, at the northwest corner of Sunset Boulevard
Boulevard
and Gower Street, is part of the ongoing rebirth of Hollywood. The Art Deco-style studio complex completed in 1938, which was once the Hollywood
Hollywood
headquarters for CBS, became home to a new generation of broadcasters when cable television networks MTV, Comedy Central, BET
BET
and Spike TV
Spike TV
consolidated their offices here in 2014 as part of a $420-million office, residential and retail complex.[34] Since 2000, Hollywood
Hollywood
has been increasingly gentrified due to revitalization by private enterprise and public planners.[35][36][37] Secession movement[edit] In 2002, some Hollywood
Hollywood
voters began a campaign for the area to secede from Los Angeles
Los Angeles
and become a separate municipality. In June of that year, the Los Angeles
Los Angeles
County Board of Supervisors placed secession referendums for both Hollywood
Hollywood
and the San Fernando Valley
San Fernando Valley
on the ballot. To pass, they required the approval of a majority of voters in the proposed new municipality as well as a majority of voters in all of Los Angeles. In the November election, both measures failed by wide margins in the citywide vote.[38] Geography[edit] According to the Mapping L.A.
