Hollywood High School

The Hollywood High School campus was established on its current site in 1904. The original Administration/Classroom Building was completed in 1905, and the first major campus expansion campaign concluded in 1913. Following the 1933 Long Beach Earthquake, all of the buildings with the exception of the Library and the Auditorium had to be demolished and new facilities constructed in their place. The replacement structures were all designed in the PWA Moderne style with significant funding from New Deal-era relief programs, lending the campus a unique visual continuity. There are five contributing buildings and one contributing site (the athletic field), and three non-contributing buildings that were constructed outside of the period of significance. The campus retains a high degree of integrity, and the non-contributing structures do not detract from the historic setting. - NRHP, 4 January 2012
