There are so many reasons to love Whitley Heights. Named after the father of Hollywood himself, H.J. Whitley, Whitley Heights was established in the early 1900s. Whitley helped develop the residential community that was and is still home to many famous Hollywood stars. It offers beautiful views along with peaceful living, which may come as a surprise since it’s only minutes away from the action on Hollywood Boulevard. Visitors and residents get to experience the best of both worlds with this historic neighborhood and The Kind Center is proud to be a neighbor.
Whitley Heights beauty is in its old Hollywood charm. The homes were built using Spanish Colonial Revival architecture and Mediterranean Revival architecture. Residents and visitors can experience views of the Hollywood Hills and Hollywood Sign.
Hollywood Heritage Museum
The Hollywood Heritage Museum features historical photographs, props, and documents from the early film production of silent movies. You can even catch a glimpse of filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille’s office space.
Whitley Height was home to many silent film stars as it was close to many of the studios. These included Paramount, Warner Brothers, and Chaplin Studios to name a few.
Did you know that H.J. Whitley opened the Hollywood Hotel?
Real estate developer, Hobart Johnstone Whitley, built the Hollywood Hotel on Prospect Avenue, which would later be named Hollywood Boulevard, and Highland Avenue in the early 1900s. Almira Hershey purchased the hotel after becoming so enthralled with it during a visit. The hotel proved to be very popular, becoming the country club and local hangout spot for prominent visitors.
The names of frequent hotel patrons, most of them well-known in the film industry during this era of silent motion pictures, were painted above the tables they sat at. Some famous guests included Rudolph Valentino, Ethel Barrymore, and Carl Laemmle. It’s believed that when the hotel was torn down in the 1950s, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce got the idea to create the Walk of Fame based on the stars at the hotel.
