One of the first Over the Mountain developments, the historic district of Hollywood was built by developer Clyde Nelson on the charms and dreams of Hollywood, California. Street names are pure L.A.: Bonita, La Prado, Poinciana, and, of course, Hollywood Boulevard. Architect George P. Turner designed many of the homes in the Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, which had become fashionably linked with the glamour of Hollywood, California in the early days of the motion picture industry there. Turner also nodded to the English Tudor style which was already widespread in Birmingham and Over the Mountain. In 2002, The Hollywood Historic District was registered with the National Register of Historic Places. With homes that have only becomes more charming with age, and new homes that honor the community’s history, Hollywood remains one of Birmingham’s favorite communities.
