Baldwin Hills was established during the early 1950’s. Baldwin Hills originally named after Elias “Lucky” Baldwin, one of the wealthiest and prominent 10th century California landowners. As time passes Baldwin Hills earned many names “The Hills”, “Golden Ghetto” and the “Black Beverly Hills”. Most recently Baldwin Hills received nationally attention because of the BET reality TV show, “Baldwin Hills”. No matter what name you use Baldwin Hills is prime real estate.
Baldwin Hills is covered with modern homes, swimming pools, and panoramic views of the city from perched, hillsides. If you are not a fan of rolling hills, then Baldwin Village, a.k.a. “The Flats”, a more secluded ambiance located in the southern portion of Baldwin Hills Estates, is for you.
