Vinegar Hill, an early suburb of San Pedro, is a neighborhood of tree-lined streets and modest single-family houses built by successful San Pedro businessmen. It is rumored that Vinegar Hill is named for a local cottage industry of home-brewed sour wine. The neighborhood residences, built from 1886 through 1927, housed the area’s diverse immigrant population and include examples of Queen Anne, American Foursquare and Craftsman styles alongside later American Colonial and Spanish Colonial Revival styles. The Vinegar Hill HPOZ was adopted in 2001.
