Highland Ave.


Highland Avenue is one of the oldest streets in Hollywood.  Running north and south, the street begins at the south end of the Cahuenga Pass and runs south to Wilshire Blvd.  On this street, are and were several famous structures. At the north end is the Hollywood Bowl, which is up the canyon called Daisy Dell.  To the south of the Hollywood Bowl and across the street is Hollywood Heritage’s DeMille Barn. 


On the northwest corner of Hollywood Blvd. was the famous Hollywood Hotel which was built in 1902.  After it was torn down in 1956, the corner was occupied by the First Federal of Hollywood building. It was torn down in 1997 and replaced by the Hollywood and Highland complex.


Just south of Hollywood Blvd. and on the east side of Highland Ave. was the Max Factor salon. Today, it is the site of the Hollywood Museum.


On the northwest corner of Highland Avenue and Sunset Blvd. is the campus of Hollywood High School.  The first building of the school was constructed in 1903.  Just south of Santa Monica Blvd. was the twelve story Hollywood Storage building built by Charles E. Toberman.


South of Melrose Avenue and east of Highland is Hancock Park which is one of the most prestigious residential neighborhoods in Los Angeles.
