Hollywood Knolls is located in the Hollywood Hills East neighborhood adjacent to Lake Hollywood. This area is right in the center of all the studios also offering easy access to the 101 and 134 freeways.
Historians recall the Cahuenga Pass as the site of the famous battle of Cahuenga in 1845. For the next 80 years, the Pass primarily served as a winding tributary permitting the turbulent expansion of the Los Angeles Basin spill over into the San Fernando Valley. It wasn’t until the mid-1920’s that developers realized the potential of the rolling slopes bordering the Pass. The then barren hills north of Cahuenga Ave and east of what is now Barham Blvd were designated the Hollywood Knolls.
In 1939 the Hollywood Knolls Community Club was incorporated. Created through the common interest of Knoll’s property owners, it has continued as a cohesive force through the volunteer efforts of elected officers and diligent supporters. The Hollywood Knolls Community Club is the oldest hillside resident’s association in Los Angeles. Over the years, the Club has grown to include Lakeridge Estates and the Hollywood Manor. The HKCC now represents approximately 750 households.
