Gardner Junction Historic District is significant for its association with early streetcar subdivision development in Los Angeles. The Laurel Canyon Line of the Pacific Electric Railway, which ran down Sunset Boulevard, was opened in 1884. Six years later, in 1900, the Los Angeles Pacific Railway opened the Wilcox line, which connected the Hollywood Line to the Pasadena & Pacific Line by cutting diagonally through the community. These two lines met at “Gardner Junction” on Gardner and Sunset Boulevard. The availability of mass transit and proximity to growing Hollywood industries encouraged multiple developers to subdivide and develop several parcels that later came to be known as Sunset Square and Spaulding Square (both Historic Preservation Overlay Zones).
Just as “Gardner Junction” brought residential development, it also spurred commercial development to support the growing population in Hollywood. Gardner Junction Historic District is the business corridor that runs along Sunset Boulevard from Vista Street to Fairfax Avenue. Gardner Junction is the walkable shopping, dining, arts, and entertainment corridor for the surrounding residential neighborhoods and beyond. Gardner Junction has deep musical roots and is home to decades-old creative shops as well as newer artistic businesses and services. It is a destination notable for its historic neighborhoods and architecture, creative businesses, hospitality, and walkability.
