Hollwood Sign Address

Close-up look at the Hollywood Sign perched high atop Mount Lee, the tallest peak in Los Angeles.

The Sign measures 450 feet long with 45 foot high letters. Erected in 1923 as an advertising sign for a real estate development, the Sign originally read "Hollywoodland."

The last four letters were removed in 1945, after Hollywood had become the world's capital, and the Sign had already become a well-known landmark.

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to reach the Sign itself, which is located atop an undeveloped hillside, far from roads. If you reach the area, you would discover the Sign has been fenced in with an alarm system to keep away the curious.

We recommend you settle for looking at the sign from almost anyplace in Hollywood.
