Historic Facts & Photos

For a written narrative history of the Conejo Valley, please review the concise individual History sections of Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, and Oak Park; found here at ConejoValley.com.

For an in depth history of our community, The Conejo Valley: Old and New Frontiers by Carol A. Bidwell and Conejo Valley Days, by Donna “Conejo” Fargo are both excellent resources. Both are available at area libraries.
