Westwood Presbyterian Church

Anxious to begin services in their own building, the members of the Westwood Presbyterian Church moved a small real estate office from a few blocks away to their hilltop location in 1949 and retrofitted it to serve as a church.

Several years later, they built the current Gothic-styled sanctuary, keeping their original building as a fellowship hall, and continuing to expand the campus to serve the growing congregation.

Fifth Church of Christ, Scientist

The former Fifth Church of Christ, Scientist is an excellent example of postwar ecclesiastical architecture and reveals the prominence of the congregation within the Hollywood community.
