The Hollywood Historic District is a historic district in Homewood, Alabama. It was actually a former town that became a part of Homewood in 1929. In commemoration of its existence, it was made a historic district.

The Hollywood Historic District was built around the mid 1920s, when a new residential subdivision was started by Clyde Nelson in 1926. In order to attract people into moving in the area, the developers, under the leadership of Architect George P. Turner, filled the area with Spanish Colonial Revival style houses which were very reminiscent of the glamor of California?s Hollywood. There were also a couple of English Tudor style houses in the area, in fashion with what was popular in Birmingham at the time. The area was developed quickly with transportation system and township incorporation just after a year. The Depression halted the further development of the Hollywood area.

Today, the Hollywood Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places with 412 contributing buildings to its name.
