In the 19th century, this part of the California coastline was mostly agricultural land that supported wheat plantations. The rolling hills of the California coast, what is part of the Pacific Coast Highway now, was perfectly suitable for wheat crops. It was also suitable for sheep grazing during the off season. The land between Hermosa and Inglewood used to have large barns that stored grain and sheltered sheep.
In 1901, plans for the boardwalk began where the Strand is currently located. The first pier was built after the necessary surveys and was completed in 1904. The first pier built with wood soon washed away and was replaced with a concrete pier in 1913. From that time, more facilities were built around it, including bait shop, and eventually an auditorium and the building continued as the beach became a popular destination for residents of Los Angeles.
A trolley line was eventually built to join L.A. with Hermosa Beach. It was named the Los Angeles Pacific Railway. The trolley commuted between L.A. and Redondo Beach, stopping at Hermosa.
