Encino, California Highlights


Encino, California is full of history and was originally acquired by the Spanish Portola expedition in 1769. The original name of Encino was “El Valle de Santa Catalina de Bononia de Los Encinos,” given to it by a missionary of Franciscan decent. The name of the missionary was Juan Crespi. As time progressed the name was shortened to just Encino. In 1845 there was a large land grant that handed the land over to three Mission Indians by the governor at that time.
