Santa Clarita's Newhall - Homes For Sale
Newhall is where Old Town Western meets Modern Elegance
Newhall was the first community to be built in Santa Clarita. Named after businessman Henry Mayo Newhall, the town of Newhall was first envisioned when it moved from its original location at modern day Bouquet Canyon Road and Magic Mountain Parkway where it started in 1876, to its current location at Railroad Avenue and Eighth Street in 1878. The town originally included just a general store, a saloon, a post office, a billiard and pool room, and a small school. Newhall also boasts being home to the first gold rush in 1842, six years before the famed Gold Rush at Sutter’s Mill. Gold was found under an oak that still stands today called, “The Oak of the Golden Dream.” Years later, after the rush of prospectors, came the discovery of “liquid gold.” Newhall is home to the oldest, successful commercial refinery in the West (built around 1877), and believed to many to be the oldest in the world. The history of this small town is rich as a resting point for travelers on their way from Los Angeles to Bakersfield, not to mention the countless movies that have been filmed in this area.

From that small town that started in the south east of Santa Clarita Valley, grew a town that now stretches all the way from it’s original location, to the I-5 freeway in the west, and all the way up to Via Princessa and Lyon’s Avenue. Although Newhall has been around for over a century, most of the homes here were built in the late 80’s and early 90’s, but some of the homes date back as far as the early 20’s!
