This area used to be inhabited by the Tongva Indian tribe, but diseases carried in by Portuguese explorers caused their numbers to dwindle. By 17880, the area that would become Sunset Strip was already a major connecting road between the ranches and the ocean. After several ownership over the intervening century, the Henry Hancock family bought it and started off the development which culminated in its current state.
West Hollywood long remained an unincorporated area next to the rest of Los Angeles, attracting people associated with movie making by virtue of being less restrictive in a variety of ways. One result of this was the architecturally unique apartment hotels and apartment building that began to pop up.
