AUTHOR'S NIGHT
 Susan M. Pascal

 
Author/Journalist/Editor, Susan M. Pascal, discussing her historical book, "Agoura Hills (Images of America)" at the Calabasas Library with host Karyn Foley.

Susan M. Pascal wrote a complete book on the history of Agoura Hills
. Originally inhabited by the Chumash Indians, the area was a well-known stagecoach stop for early settlers heading west thanks to its accessibility to well water.
In 1927, Paramount Pictures purchased a ranch and started making movies; hence, the town became known as Picture City, having drawn the likes of silent film star Laura LaPlante (for whom a street was named), Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, and Claudette Colbert. The town was renamed by the Post Office to Agoura Hills after French settler Pierre Agoure.
In 1982, the residents voted to officially incorporate the 7.9-square-mile region, making Agoura Hills Los Angeles County's 82nd city.
