The area was home to Native Americans in the 18th century. They left behind rock art and caves. The Rancho Ex-Mission San Fernando was established in the area after the Spanish arrived. It was the largest land grant in California. The Native American Trail was used by missionaries throughout the region during the Mission.
The region was home to several Tongva- and Gabrielino villages. These villages were found near the river and sea. Up next
Cottages for homestead owners
The historic structures known as Homestead cottages can be a great reminder of the early days of Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley. Hill-Palmer Cottage (or “Homestead Acre”) is one of the few remaining examples. This American Craftsman-Bungalow in redwood Stick-Eastlake design is located on Chatsworth Park South. It was constructed in 1911. It is currently owned by the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and maintained by Chatsworth Historical Society.
Chatsworth is built on land once used for ranchos. Spain first claimed the area, but Mexico later took it. In the 1870s, a large number of pioneers began homesteading in the area. Ann and Neils Johnson were among the first English-speaking settlers. They lived in a simple wooden structure with a porch and vertical screens in their cottage on the homestead.
