Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles CA

The history of this neighborhood started all the way back in the early 1900’s, when a land developer, Gen. Moses Hazeltine Sherman bought a massive parcel of land. Nearly 20 years would pass before it would turn into what is now known as Sherman Oaks.


One of the events that boosted the development of this area was the construction of Mulholland Drive. You know that big HOLLYWOOD sign that you’ve seen in so many movies and TV shows? Well, it´s right on the side of this road.


But not only that, Mulholland Drive takes you through the Santa Monica Mountains, providing an amazing view of L.A.
