Hellman Street was named after Isaias W. Hellman, a German immigrant who came to Los Angeles in 1859 and got a job in a dry goods store. Several years later, he opened his own store, grew into a very prominent and successful businessman, and eventually became one of the part-ners of the Alamitos Land Company. A profile of area residents as reflected in the 1920s City Directories shows occupants in various trades, from carpenters, actors, and decorative artists to electricians, bookkeepers, and cement molders. This district contains a high concentration of original Craftsman Bungalows from the first development of this residential neighborhood between 1911 and 1920. Reflective of California vernacular architecture during that time, the homes are simple, straight forward in design with open, spatial qualities. They commonly include gabled roofs and open porches.
