Main Street, Old Town Newhall
The mystique of the Old West lives on in Santa Clarita, just a short drive north of Los Angeles. The film industry has called Santa Clarita home for nearly a century as legends like John Ford, William S. Hart and Gene Autry fell in love with the area’s versatility and authentic Western heritage. The Walk of Western Stars began in 1981 to honor legends of Western film, television and radio who have contributed to America’s heritage since 1900. The Old West comes alive again each Spring as western stars are immortalized on the streets of Old Town Newhall during the City of Santa Clarita’s Cowboy Festival.
