Los Encinos State Historic Park is located at the Native village of Siutcanga, meaning the place of the oaks. The natural spring provided a year-round source of water for our ancestors for thousands of years. In the Mexican period, our ancestors received the Rancho Encino land grant under Mexican trust and protection. However, the land was lost just several years later in the American Period due to sharp business practices of a neighboring Spaniard named Vicente de la Osa. Today, you can visit the historic adobe, Garnier building, natural water spring, and see the well-known traditional trade route now known as Ventura Blvd.
