Charming Angelino Heights, located on a hill west of Downtown, has the largest concentration of Victorian homes in Los Angeles. Walking the beauteous blocks in this area developed in the 1880s is like stepping back in time. The passionate homeowners of Angelino Heights are seriously dedicated to restoring them to their original charm and elegance. Delight in the history and architectural details - spindles, turrets, towers, stained glass, gables, and wrap-around porches - of these Queen Anne and Eastlake homes as knowledgeable tour guides from the LA Conservancy share their love for this well-preserved section of Echo Park.

Los Angeles Conservancy says…

Angelino Heights is considered one of the first suburbs of Los Angeles. Built on a hill just a few miles west of the city center, the area was developed in the mid-1880s by William W. Stilson and Everett E. Hall. It is one of the few neighborhoods in Los Angeles remaining intact from the Victorian era. The main part of the tour explores Carroll Avenue, a street lined with Victorian homes from the late nineteenth century, nearly all of which have been fully restored. Carroll Avenue is a National Register Historic District, and in 1983 was designated as the first historic district (Historic Preservation Overlay Zone) in the City of Los Angeles. The neighborhood has been featured in dozens of films, TV shows, and commercials.
