From vineyards to warehouses to a culturally significant community.
THE HISTORY OF THE ARTS DISTRICT
The Arts District history begins with its development into acres of vineyards and citrus orchards by Los Angeles’ pioneers of the late 19th century. By the early 1920’s, the growing demand for warehouses and shipping depots coupled with a manufacturing boom, and the inception of transcontinental rail transportation, spurred economic growth and the development of Los Angeles as a major West Coast logistics hub. During this time the street-scape and much of the building inventory we know today was developed in the Arts District.
