About this title

Synopsis:

Newhall’s many firsts include the first gold discovery in California and the first commercially successful oil well, which led to the first pipeline and oil refinery in California. Some of the earliest movie location filming was done here. First recorded by Juan Crespi on the Sacred Expedition of 1769, the Little Santa Clara Valley was recognized by the Spanish as an important junction between the mountain ranges separating Northern and Southern California. The early city fathers of Los Angeles saw the settlement of Newhall as an integral part of their strategy for growth from the days of the stagecoach and railroad through to the building of Ridge Route and Interstate 5. This book tells the story of the town that never quite lived up to its potential but still managed a varied history with a colorful cast rivaling those of the movies filmed here.

About the Author:

Author Maggi Perkins is the third generation of her family to live in Newhall. Upon inheriting her grandfather’s historical archive, she took up his work, writing articles about Newhall’s history. Most of the photographs in this book are from the collection of the late Arthur B. Perkins, Newhall’s first historian. Supplementary photographs came from the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society.
