Mount Washington is an old neighborhood with renewed interest. Founded in 1909 and built around its name-sake mountain, a Hotel once sat at its summit. A funicular was the popular mode of transport for visitors heading up the area's steep hillside. The railway stopped running in 1919 but the charm remains. With close proximity to all the amenities in Highland Park and Eagle Rock, Mt. Washington is a beautiful and peaceful residential area. It boasts one of the top-rated elementary schools in the state, with its students consistently achieving top scores among Los Angeles schools in the Academic Performance Index. Mount Washington also includes the Southwest Museum, the world headquarters of the Self-Realization Fellowship, and Eldred Street, one of the three steepest streets in Los Angeles.
