Streets of Hollywood
History of the Streets
Have you ever wonder what the history of the streets of Hollywood was, from Hollywood, Sunset and Santa Monica Blvd., and all the streets in between. Each and every street has a history starting back over 100 years.
Hollywood Boulevard was originally called Prospect Avenue until 1910, when Hollywood was a town created by H.J. Whitley, until it was annexed by the neighboring city of Los Angeles. Once it was annexed the streets numbers changed from 100 Prospect Ave, at Vermont Avenue to 4600 Hollywood Blvd.
