Decades before there was the city of Santa Clarita, there were two small towns in the Valley: Newhall and Saugus.  The Santa Clarita Valley was simply an area of ranches and farms in northern Los Angeles County.  Newhall was the place where ranchers bought groceries and other needs -- and, at Saugus, shipped out what they produced via the railroad that runs along San Fernando Road.  As new developments were built, and ranching became less important,  Newhall and Saugus were absorbed into what is now Santa Clarita.

canyon theater guild newhall The Canyon Theater Guild occupies this building in old town Newhall and offers family-oriented productions and children's theater.  

Today, Newhall is undergoing a revival and now has a distinctly multicultural flavor.  This neighborhood includes small, older homes on both big and small lots, as well as luxurious custom homes, hidden away among the trees in the hillsides.  It is definitely not a neighborhood of mass-produced production homes.  Each house is the result of one person's unique vision of what a home should be.  And there are homes for sale to fit almost every budget!

The Old West still lives in Newhall's Western Walk of Fame and the William S. Hart Regional Park with its exhibition of Western life and an example of an old-time ranch house and the original Saugus train station.
