Historic Points of Interest

Santa Clarita is home to some of the most important historic sites in California.  Take a trip back into Southern California history and visit Mentryville, California’s Pioneer Oil Town and home to “Pico Number 4,” the longest running oil well in the world.  Consider an afternoon at the beautiful William S. Hart Museum & Park, former home of the first cowboy movie star, featuring an impressive collection of Native American artifacts and Western American art.  And right next door, make plans to visit Heritage Junction, home of the historic Saugus Train Station. From a pioneer oil town to the Walk of Western Stars, Santa Clarita historic sites make for a fascinating trip back in time and a glimpse at old Southern California.
