Hollywood began its existence as an agricultural community. It was originally called the Cahuenga Valley and was later renamed by HJ Whitley, the Father of Hollywood. Hollywood was prosperous even while the rest of the cities, including Los Angeles, were facing a real estate bust. Hollywood's growth began attracting more city activity and soon, a hotel, the Glen Holly Hotel, was built, followed by the Hollywood Hotel in 1905.
Hollywood was finally incorporated as a municipality in 1903 and immediately after banned liquor in the city, except for medicinal purposes. Hollywood then merged with Los Angeles in 1910, changing its main street, Prospect Avenue, into Hollywood Boulevard.
The motion picture industry began in Hollywood in 1912 when D.W. Griffith decided to make a motion picture in Hollywood. The movie was titled In Old California and ran for 17 minutes. The irony is that Hollywood had banned movie studios before the annexation by LA, but that ban no longer existed after the annexation. A short time after the first movie, studios by Paramount, Warner Bros, RKO and Columbia were set up in Hollywood.
