A little Venice History!    The legendary Abbot Kinney introduced the world to Venice in 1905 on the 4th of July.

About the Venice Sign:   Spanning across Windward Avenue at Pacific, the VENICE Sign in lights is a modern day replica of the one originally installed in 1905 by the legendary Abbot Kinney.  In 2007, the Venice Sign Restoration Project recreated and installed the contemporary version of this historic sign.  Since that time the Venice Chamber has been responsible for the Sign and for protecting its trademark.
