Larchmont was originally named Glenwood. The name was changed to Larchmont in 1912, most likely after Larchmont, New York on the Long Island Sound. In the early 1920s, Larchmont, New York (a village in the Town of Mamaroneck) was a center of movie making. According to the New York Times, "In those days, the area was less the "East Coast Hollywood" than Hollywood was “the West Coast Mamaroneck.”"
