Riviera Village The first inhabitants of the Hollywood Riviera, now known to locals as the “Village”, traveled nomadically, followed food sources, and were scantily clad. The original developer of the Hollywood Riviera was entranced by the movie business and felt that the seaside properties would be a natural location for the Hollywood “set” to buy and build. The Village is located in and around the area between Torrance and Palos Verdes Blvds. It’s a perfect place for strolling and stopping for en espresso and dessert. The shops are a lively mix of swimwear, sport wear, objects d’art, antiquities and California original art.
Historically there have been seven piers—built, rebuilt, destroyed and dismantled in the last 100 hundred years. Today, the pier is still a popular destination place for locals and visitors, providing venues for sport fishing, as well as dining, shopping and entertainment.

Turn of the century home, the Morrell House, is a combination of Queen Anne and Craftsman detailing
The Morrell House is a 1906 Victorian with Craftsman details, originally located on Catalina Avenue. It was saved from demolition and painstakingly restored by many dedicated volunteers. Now, under the custodianship of the Redondo Beach Historical Society, the Morrell House has been furnished as a living museum, with furniture, photos and local artifacts from the turn-of-the-century through the early 1940’s. The Historical Society is currently developing a library on the second floor where patrons will be able to view articles, photographs, interviews, and research.
