Santa Clarita history:

A history page for the city of Santa Clarita. The city was formed on December 15, 1987 as the 85th city in the county of Los Angeles. Back in 1969, work was started to have Santa Clarita become a city of its own. Committees were formed to address concerns and questions of the residents. Though the original size was to be around 95 square miles, the size was cut to about 40 square miles and included portions of Newhall, Saugus, Valencia, and part of Canyon Country. See the above website for more details.

Historical sites to visit and see in the area.

The town areas of Newhall, Saugus, Canyon Country and Valencia were all incorporated into the new city of Santa Clarita. When we incorporated, we were the largest city to ever be incorporated in the state. (40 sq miles which is now - 1999 - approx 45 sq mi. with annexations this last 11 yrs). Each area (Newhall, Saugus, Canyon Country and Valencia) all still retains their identity but are located inside the Santa Clarita City limits. Santa Clarita has also been designated for the last several years as the 4th safest city in the United States (cities over 100,000 population) by the FBI. We are also in the running currently for the "All American City" (1999)
