Beverly Hills, California is a city in the western part of Los Angeles County, California. Beverly Hills and the neighboring city of West Hollywood are together surrounded by the city of Los Angeles. The area's so-called "Golden Triangle" of wealthy neighborhoods is formed by Beverly Hills and the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Bel-Air and Holmby Hills.
Beverly Hills is bordered on the north by Bel-Air and the Santa Monica Mountains, on the east by West Hollywood and the Fairfax District of Los Angeles, on the south by Los Angeles' Beverlywood neighborhood and on the west by Holmby Hills as well as Westwood Village and Century City, which are also Los Angeles neighborhoods and not separate cities. While Beverly Hills is a separate city, it is culturally very much a part of Los Angeles. (from wikipedia.com)
The Creation of Beverly Hills
In 1900, the land was purchased by the Amalgamated Oil Company. They drilled several wells, only to have their drill bits gather dust above and below ground. And by 1906, the property passed into the hands of the Rodeo Land and Water Company, with Burton E. Green as head of the development company.
Green and the new corporation hired a landscape architect, Wilbur D. Cook, who designed a town with large lots for homes and wide curving streets, to be lined with palm, eucalyptus, acacia and other variety of trees. Cook also created a three block long, eighty-feet wide greensward along the north side of Santa Monica Boulevard called Santa Monica Park.
When trying to decide on a name for the town they were about to build, Burton Green happened to read a newspaper article that mentioned Beverly Farms, Massachusetts, and as he read, it struck him that Beverly was a pretty name. He suggested the name Beverly Hills to his associates and it was accepted.
