Huntington Palisadesis close to the ‘village’ proper, and is more of a typical suburb. It is located south of Sunset Blvd.

This area of the Pacific Palisades is known for its family friendly residential streets, huge Eucalyptus trees and cool ocean breezes. Originally bought for personal use by Abbott Kinney, a well known scholar and developer, it was soon sold to Collis Huntington, whose railroad dominated the Southern Pacific Railroad Network.

The development of the Huntington Palisades was left to Mark Daniels and W.W. William, two engineers with experience in landscape architecture and road construction. Upon creating their plans for the layout of the streets, the two decided to name them after famous places and people of Mexico, starting with Alma Real Drive, to honor William’s lady friend, a Mexican singer and dancer. The First home was completed before the end of 1926, and was a beautiful 12-room colonial located at 601 Ocampo Drive.
