Welcome to Hancock Park

Its central location gives residents access to all the amenities of the city while maintaining the feel of a small town. Expansive green lawns and houses set back from the street lend a bucolic ambiance to the neighborhood.


Hancock Park was purchased in 1863 by Major Henry Hancock. Then, in 1920, Hancock’s son developed it into a residential area. Modern for its time, power lines were buried to maintain the neighborhood’s aesthetic appeal. The two-story homes were designed by famed architects Frank Lloyd Wright and Wallace Neff. The architectural refinement remains today, as the area is designated as a Historic Preservation Overlay Zone. When it comes to Hancock Park, Los Angeles' real estate options, one can still see the 1920 Craftsman, Colonial Revival, and Spanish-style houses gracing Hancock Park today.  


In the Golden Age of Hollywood, Hancock Park was home to an assortment of celebrities and industry moguls. Those wealthy and famous residents enjoyed the community’s central location mixed with its quietude and relaxed feel. Today’s residents still savor the friendly, demure atmosphere of Hancock Park.

The company was founded in the early 1900s when Barnsdall arrived in the West with plans to create a theatre company. Hollyhock Park and its Frank Lloyd Wright-designed structures were donated by Aline Barnsdall in 1927 to the City of Los Angeles to provide an arts center for all residents. It was Barnsdall's intention to keep the arts center active for the community.
