The name of Hollywood is said to originate from the story of H.J. Whiteley, also known as the “Father of Hollywood”. When on his honeymoon in 1886, he stood atop a hill overlooking the valley and saw a Chinese man traveling in a wagon full of wood. The Chinese man approached Whiteley and bowed. When Whiteley asked what he was doing, the man replied, “I holly wood”, meaning, “I hauling wood”. Whiteley came up with the idea to name this new town Hollywood.

Hollywood has an ethnically diverse community and a rich economic history. Developing from just a small community in the 1870s, Hollywood was incorporated as a municipality in 1903 and made its official merger with the City of Los Angeles in 1910. Soon after, it started to venture into the popular film industry, which gradually helped Hollywood became the most recognizable place in the entire world.
