About the Event

Join us for a guided tour of the historic homes and hidden staircases in the neighborhood just up the hill from the Hollywood Heritage Museum (2100 N. Highland Avenue). In addition to seeing the home of Whitley Heights founder Hobart J. Whitley, you will learn about the legendary movie stars, landmarks, architects and designers who worked and lived here during Hollywood's golden age including Rudolph Valentino, Jean Harlow, Francis X. Bushman, Rosalind Russell, Donald O'Connor and many more. 

The tour will end at a private home in Whitley Heights that was built in 1921, where we will step back in time to see what the inside of a Whitley Heights home was like. Not to mention, this home once overlooked Rudolph Valentino's home.

This tour will feature views of Hollywood, including the Capitol Records building on Vine Street.

To explore the charming Whitley Heights neighborhood we will meet and end at the Lasky-DeMille Barn aka the Hollywood Heritage Museum. Parking is free in the parking lot in front of the barn.


  • This is a strenuous hike up several hills. The approximate distance is about a mile round trip.
  • To beat the heat, the tour will leave promptly at 9:00 AM from the Hollywood Heritage Museum. Plan to arrive between 8:30 and 8:40 PM to check in and use the restroom at the museum.
  • Don't forget gear such as water, sunglasses, a sun hat, sunscreen and good walking shoes.

This tour is limited to 30 people who will travel in smaller groups through the residential neighborhood. While photo taking from the street is allowed, we ask tour-goers to respect the privacy of the residents, by not trespassing on private property.
