Pacific Palisades is located in the Westside of Los Angeles, California and is an affluent neighborhood. It is bordered by Brentwood, Malibu, Topanga, Santa Monica, and the Santa Monica Mountains. With over 27,000 residents there is a mixture of real estate including condominiums and single-family homes.
Film director Thomas Ince created Inceville in Pacific Palisades in 1911 and employed almost 600 people. Years later the land was purchased by the Southern California Methodist Episcopal Church and Reverend Charles H. Scott. The reverend envisioned a commune of religious study and intellect and his followers grabbed choice lots, living in tents during the community’s construction. The Palisades had 100 homes by 1925 and tents were replaced over time by multimillion-dollar houses.
