Windsor Village began during the 1920s due to its proximity to the streetcar. After Wilshire Boulevard was put through it grew even faster. The Period Revival houses are mostly single-family and multi-family homes with lawns and front walks.
Locals can walk to Harold Henry Park to read a book, walk their dog, or play with their kids. You can also ride a bike or walk to Larchmont Boulevard and all the shops, cafes and restaurants that it’s well known for.
Windsor Village is also home to the Wilshire United Methodist Church. The Gothic and Romanesque church hosts multilingual services every Sunday, and is an active part of the community serving as a polling place and putting on plays in its small theater.
Locals can also enjoy the Ebell of Los Angeles either as members or as residents of Windsor Village. It houses historical collections of art, furnishings, clocks, and more. The Spanish Colonial complex has two ballrooms, meeting rooms, and a large theater.
Windsor Village is a Historical Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) which protects the area’s historic beauty. The HPOZ prohibits developers from tearing down homes and building McMansions. And new exterior improvements must fit with the architectural style of the neighborhood.
