- National Register of Historic Places listings in Los Angeles, California
This is a list of the National Register of Historic Places listings in Los Angeles, California. There are 210 places listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Los Angeles, California, United States. Twenty-six of these sites are historic districts which include numerous buildings and other structures. The historic districts include the Hollywood Boulevard business district and four large areas in Downtown Los Angeles: the Plaza Historic District, Little Tokyo, the Spring Street Financial District and the Broadway Theater District.
Ten of these sites are further designated National Historic Landmarks of the United States. These are Angelus Temple, Baldwin Hills Village, the Aline Barnsdall Complex, the Bradbury Building, the Eames House, the Lane Victory, the Little Tokyo Historic District, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Ralph J. Scott, and the Watts Towers of Simon Rodia.
The first site in Los Angeles to be listed was the Rómulo Pico Adobe in the Mission Hills section of the city, and the second site listed was the Los Angeles Central Library in Downtown Los Angeles. Several of the oldest historic sites are located in the Los Angeles Plaza Historical District in Downtown Los Angeles; these include the original Nuestra Señora La Reina de Los Angeles Church (1822), the Avila Adobe, Los Angeles' oldest residence (1818), Olvera Street, the Italianate style Masonic Hall (1858), and the Italian Renaissance Revival style Merced Theater (1869).
Of the sites, while most are office buildings or homes, two are ships. There are 21 Los Angeles Public Library branches (or buildings that were formerly branches) listed in the register. Seven temples or churches are listed. At least five sites are related to rail transportation. Included also are four hotels, five theaters (in addition to the Broadway Theater District), four U.S. post offices, and four fire stations.
To be listed on the National Register, sites must retain their historic integrity, they usually must be 50 years old, and their listing must be promoted – or at least not opposed – by the current owner, so many historically important sites in the city are not listed. Included on the list are sites relating to the movie industry such as a former office building of the Warner Bros. studios, but no film lots or film studio buildings are listed. Despite the city's involvement in aviation history, only two sites, Hangar One and Portal of the Folded Wings, appears to relate to that. Perhaps only a Victory ship and two coastal battery sites relate to the city's military-industrial history.
The 210 listings are distributed across many neighborhoods of Los Angeles, from San Pedro in the south to the northern reaches of Chatsworth in the San Fernando Valley, and from the Pacific Palisades on the west to Highland Park on the east. Thirty-seven are located in Downtown Los Angeles; 25 are in Hollywood, 16 are in West Adams, and 13 are in San Pedro. Reflecting the sprawl of Los Angeles, the city's northernmost historic site in Chatsworth (the Old Stagecoach Trail) is more than 55 miles (89 km) from its southernmost site in San Pedro (Point Fermin Light).
