The community of Hermon is a minuscule district in Los Angeles that is only a half-square mile in size. It is sandwiched between Monterey Hills and South Pasadena along the border of the historic 110 Arroyo Seco Parkway. Because of its size, Hermon is known to be a residential district. However, it does have two schools, two parks, and a small business area as well. The population of Hermon is approximately 3,500. Hermon’s size allows it to be a simple, cozy neighborhood. It is known for its leash-free dog park and century-old Sycamore trees.
This quaint little district is becoming a popular choice among homeowners seeking property in Los Angeles. Along with its neighboring districts, Hermon real estate has been steadily climbing in value and Hermon real estate agents have increased their marketing efforts to potential buyers.
Many communities surrounding Hermon have begun their own gentrification process. Eagle Rock, Highland Park, and Glassell Park have all started to obtain new residents who have helped to transform the neighborhoods and businesses within these communities. These new residents have begun to bleed into Hermon and continue their gentrification process. Working class people drawn to Los Angeles because of the cornucopia of career opportunities seek refuge in Hermon because of its small town feel. People are able to live in close proximity to their work while escaping the hustle and bustle of the big city in the quaint neighborhood of Hermon.
Hermon was developed in the early 1900’s and the homes reflect the early century’s character. The most common type of housing found throughout Hermon includes bungalows and cottages that comfortably fit small families with handsome yards. Throughout the later years of the 20th century there was a series of Spanish and Craftsman homes built to reflect the mid-century style. Because of the small size of Hermon, there are very little homes available for purchase, making Hermon a difficult place to get in to.
Hermon often throws gatherings to increase the feel of community throughout the district. In the summers Hermon throws a “City- Centennial Celebration” at its main park in order to showcase Hermon’s businesses, schools, and organizations. They have performances, free lunches, and tables where the businesses can hand out coupons in order to promote themselves and get their name noticed. Hermon cares about its citizens and businesses and strives to bring them together to create an area of success and high quality living.
