The early years of Calabasas
offer a colorful history full of buried treasure, cattle and
sheep ranches, stagecoaching, ghost sightings, and some of
Southern California’s roughest and toughest residents.
Between the 1920s and 1970s, countless films and television
episodes were filmed in the west San Fernando Valley area
alone. It was a time when Westerns ruled the scene, and the
studios bought up huge tracts of underdeveloped acreage in
the hills around Calabasas to serve as movie ranches. In
banning secondhand smoke, plastic bags, and Styrofoam,
Calabasas has been on the forefront of enacting
environmental stewardship to preserve its historical roots
and protect its open spaces.
