Brief information about Canyon Country
Canyon Country is north of the San Fernando Valley via Newhall Pass through the Santa Susana and San Gabriel Mountains. Canyon Country is located in the upper watershed of the Santa Clara River in the Santa Clarita Valley and Sierra Pelona Mountains foothills.
In the 1880s the rancho become the Newhall Ranch empire of Henry Newhall, now the present day Newhall Land and Farming Company. In 1928 the St. Francis Dam collapsed, suddenly flooding and washing away settlements and people along the Santa Clara River section of present-day Santa Clarita not including Canyon Country. Canyon Country was originally to be called Solemint. It later absorbed the community to the west called Honby. In the 1960s and 1970s the Newhall Land company’s suburban developments transformed Canyon Country and the surrounding towns into a focused residential and cultural city.
The house of The Crandall family used in the movie Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead is located in this town. The hit ABC shows Wipeout, Winter Wipeout, and Spring Wipeout are all filmed here.
The Canyon Country area was a mecca for show business personalities like Cliffe Stone of Home Town Jamboree, singer Gene Vincent, Hall of Fame Guitarist Bill Aken (aka Zane Ashton), actress Linda Gray, rock and roll legend Del Shannon, among others. The William S. Hart ranch was a well known tourist attraction along with Gene Autry’s Melody Ranch.
Canyon Country is home to the Placerita Canyon Nature Center, which is also the site of California’s original gold discovery at the historic “Oak of the Golden Dream” in 1842.
