Windsor Village is an intact residential district with distinct visual character. Originally ubdivided for residential development adjacent to the streetcar lines, early twentieth-century Windsor Village was sparsely populated with it mostly undeveloped compared to neighboring streets until the 1920s and 30s. At this time, with the automobile reigning as the primary mode of transportation in the City, Windsor Village’s adjacency to Wilshire Boulevard made it a fashionable location for single- and multiplefamily residential development. Windsor Village, which was in the pre-World War II era often associated by proximity to such upscale tracts as Windsor Square, found its own identity in the 1960s with the formation of Windsor Park (now Harold A. Henry Park) at the heart of the neighborhood. The continued commercialization of Crenshaw and Olympic Boulevard gave it natural boundaries, and the Windsor Village neighborhood name began to appear in the 1970s.
