Explore - Los Encinos State Historic Park

Los Encinos Beyond the Adobe explores the cultural, historical, and agricultural attributes of Los Encinos State Historic Park, located in Encino California. We start by talking about the Native people that called this area home, the Western Tongva/Fernandeño tribe. Through the centuries the area has been home to Native peoples, the Spanish Crown, Mexico, and then becoming part of the United States in 1850. Highlights include discussing the once 4,500-acre Rancho, the 172-year-old De la Osa Adobe, the 149-year-old Garnier building, the natural hot spring and duck pond, and various native plants, trees, and animals.
