Geography[edit] The neighborhood is bounded by Fairfax Avenue to the east, Olympic Boulevard to the south, and Wilshire Boulevard to the north.[2]


History[edit] Originally named Carthay Center, Carthay Circle was planned in 1921 by landscape architects Cook and Hill.[2] Developer J. Henry McCarthay founded the 136-acre, mainly Spanish Revival, community. No two homes are alike due to the rule that all homes had to be designed individually by an architect, and notable designers such as Paul Williams and Robert Byrd contributed to the neighborhood. [3] McCarthy named the streets in honor of prominent figures of the California Gold Rush.[4] He also planned the neighborhood around a shopping center.[2] The main feature of the neighborhood was the Carthay Circle Theater. The theater was finished in 1926, and soon became the focal point of Carthay Center.[1] The theater, site of film premieres including Disney's Snow White and Gone with the Wind, inspired the community to change the name from “Carthay Center” to “Carthay Circle.” [5] The theater was demolished in 1969 [6].


Parks and Recreation[edit] Carthay Circle Park - The park is located at the intersection of McCarthy Vista & Crescent Heights Boulevard and is maintained by the City of Los Angeles.[7]


Landmarks[edit] Located in Carthay Circle Park, "The Pioneer” is a statue by Henry Lion that stands about seven feet tall and weighs 512 pounds and was designed as part of a fountain. [8] It was installed on September 25, 1924.[1] Alternately known as "Dan the Miner", the statue went missing in 2009. It has been stolen during a rash of robberies spawned by rising copper prices. The statue was recovered, repaired, and reinstalled in 2010.[8]


Historic Preservation Overlay Zone[edit] The Carthay Circle Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) adopting ordinance became effective on July 24, 1998. [9] The Carthay Circle preservation plan was adopted by the City of Los Angeles on December 9, 2010. Objectives of the HPOZ include: Safeguarding the character of historic buildings and sites and recognizing and protecting the historic streetscape and development patterns. [10]
