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 with this style of architecture, and is located just east of Echo Park and south of Dodger Stadium.
It is a sidewalk walking tour of Carroll Ave, well worth the short walk or slow driving tour. 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. These late 19th century homes are private residents and many have been restored, some in various stages of restoration. A walking tour is best to see the various exterior details of each home and to take photos. Unfortunately because they are private residences you cannot enter and see the interiors. Oh well.
