Agoura Hills

Hundreds of years ago, Agoura Hills, California was originally the home of the Chumash Indians. The Chumash developed extensive trading networks and lived in circular domed structures made from tule or reed thatch and poles. Later, the early town was nothing more than a stagecoach stop. In the late 1920s it was named after one of the area’s most colorful landowners; Pierre Agoure. Somehow, the ‘e’ was changed to an ‘a’ but the reason why is still a mystery. Today, Agoura Hills is a thriving suburban community located between the Simi Hills and the Santa Monica Mountains. Less than ten miles from the beach and only 30-45 minutes to downtown, it is possible to live in paradise without a grueling commute. The city embraces its history by way of the Reyes Adobe. Built in 1850 during the state’s rancho period, Agoura Hills’ first home represents 150 years of exciting California history hi-lighting the rancho period, oral history and Spanish Rancho architecture. The Reyes Adobe’s hearth has drawn people from different cultures that have influenced the scenic and strategically located property along the state’s famous El Camino Real. Locals and tourists alike enjoy guided tours at the Reyes Adobe Tuesdays 10am-2pm.
