Angelino Heights was considered to be the first suburb of Los Angeles when it was established in 1887, and is located just northwest of downtown LA. Carroll Avenue and the immediate vicinity within Angelino Heights holds the largest concentration of Victorian-era architecture in Los Angeles, and contains more than a dozen Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monuments. Below is a sample of the architecture in the Angelino Heights Historic Preservation Overlay Zone, the first district in Los Angeles to receive official landmark status.
