Hancock Park is a very special and historic residential neighborhood in central Los Angeles. The community has a distinctly elegant feel to it with beautiful Tudor and Spanish style homes situated on large lots. The highly educated community has several public and private schools in the area. There is even a quaint small town feeling to the area called Larchmont Village where residents can meet for all their shopping and dining needs.
Hancock Park was named after native Los Angelino, developer-philanthropist George Allan Hancock in the 1920s. The city was developed by the Hancock family with profits from their oil drilling ventures.
