The area now known as Woodland Hills was originally inhabited by Native Americans, the Fernandeno-Tataviam and Chumash-Venturano tribes, who lived in the Santa Monica Mountains and Simi Hills, by the Arroyo Calabasas (Calabasas Creek). In 1769 the first European explorers settled in the San Fernando Valley, established the Mission San Fernando Rey de Espana and controlled the land. Americans took over ownership of the land south of Roscoe Blvd from Toluca Lake to Woodland Hills in 1860’s and eventually changed hands from Lankershim, to Isaac Newton Van Nuys, Harry Chandler, Hobart Johnstone Whitley, Gen Moses Sherman and others. Eventually the community of 2886 acres was bought by Victor Girard Kleinberg and then incorporated in 1945 forming the city of Woodland Hills.
