History

Early history and development

In 1853, one adobe hut stood in Nopalera (Nopal field), named for the Mexican Nopal cactus indigenous to the area.{{huh|date=July 2019}} By 1870, an agricultural community flourished. The area was known as the Cahuenga Valley, after the pass in the Santa Monica Mountains immediately to the north.{{cn|date=July 2019}}According to the diary of H. J. Whitley, also 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.WEB,weblink Holy Moly How Did Hollywood Get Its name, 2018-07-26,weblink 2018-07-26, yes, "Holly" would represent England and "wood" would represent his Scottish heritage.

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 County Recorder's office on a deed and parcel map of the property.

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.Father of Hollywood Dies Hollywood Daily Citizen (1931)Whitley's company developed and sold one of the early residential areas, the Ocean View Tract.Los Angeles from the mountains to the sea: with selected biography ..., Volume 3 By John Steven McGroarty 1921 pg. 815 Whitley did much to promote the area.

Incorporation and merger

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 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.weblink "Hollywood Becomes a Prohibition Town," Los Angeles Times, December 29, 1903, page A-3In 1910, the city voted for merger with 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 and all the street numbers were also changed.Hollywood California | Hollywood History and Information {{webarchive|url=https://web.archive.org/web/20110215214425weblink |date=2011-02-15 }}.

Development

File:Hollywood boulevard from kodak theatre.jpg|thumb|left|Hollywood BoulevardHollywood Boulevard(File:Capitol Records Building LA.jpg|thumb|upright|Capitol Records Tower, 1991)In 1923, a large sign, reading HOLLYWOODLAND, was built in the Hollywood Hills. Its purpose was to advertise a housing development. In 1949, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce entered a contract with the City of 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.BOOK,weblink The New Historical Dictionary of the American Film Industry, Slide, Anthony, February 25, 2014, Routledge, 9781135925543, 94, en, During the early 1950s, the Hollywood Freeway was constructed through the northeast corner of Hollywood.The Capitol Records Building on Vine Street, just north of Hollywood Boulevard, was built in 1956, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame was created in 1958 as a tribute to artists and other significant contributors to the entertainment industry.

Secession movement

In 2002, some Hollywood voters began a campaign for the area to secede from Los Angeles and become a separate municipality. In June of that year, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors placed secession referendums for both Hollywood and the 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.WEB, Grand, Noah, Valley, Hollywood secession measures fail,weblink Daily Bruin, December 29, 2013, November 5, 2002,
