SANTA CLARITA, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Santa Clarita, California, is in Los Angeles County, and is situated along the Santa Clara River. Santa Clarita is 35 miles northwest of Los Angeles. According to the 2020 census, Santa Clarita’s population is over 228,000.
About 450 A.D., the Tataviam tribe settled in the Santa Clara River Valley and established about 25 semi-permanent villages on south facing slopes on the nearby hills and mountains. In August 1769, the Spanish explorers from the Portola Expedition named the Santa Clara river and the valley became known as Santa Clarita which means, “little Santa Clara.”
The first gold strike in California was actually found in Santa Clarita on March 9,1842, by Jose Francisco de Gracia Lopes—well before gold was found in Sutter’s Mill in 1848. In 1875, Henry Mayo Newhall, a real estate and railroad businessman, purchased the Rancho San Francisco and granted a right-of-way to the Southern Pacific Co. The first track connecting San Francisco with Los Angeles was placed across Newhall’s ranch. Newhall named the towns of Saugus and Newhall. His company the Newhall Land and Farming Company had an important part in the city’s development.
In 1987, the residents of Santa Clarita voted to incorporate their city which consisted of several communities, including, Canyon Country, Newhall, Saugus, and Valencia. Santa Clarita is near the San Fernando fault and was damaged in the 1971 San Fernando earthquake and the 1994 Northridge earthquake.
Santa Clarita is home to the California Institute of the Arts, The Master’s University and College of the Canyons. Princess Cruises, Honda Performance Development, Precision Dynamics Corporation, and Newhall Land and Farming Company, are all based in Santa Clarita. Santa Clarita has many recreational areas, including the Angeles and Los Padres National Forest.
