SCV Historical Society | FivePoint, City Thanked for Supporting Historic Restoration
A press conference Friday honored the public-private partnership of Valencia developer FivePoint and the City of Santa Clarita to cover the cost of new, historic-looking metal roof for the Newhall Ranch House at Heritage Junction Historic Park. It’s the first step toward the full restoration of the building, which once served as the local headquarters of The Newhall Land and Farming Company.
The event included the presentation of a $25,000 check from FivePoint to the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society, matching the city’s contribution to the project.
The Friday, February 28 event brought out Santa Clarita City Council members, SCV Historical Society members, representatives from FivePoint, representatives of local dignitaries, and community members to Heritage Junction, which is located at William S. Hart Park in Old Town Newhall.
Heritage Junction allows visitors to step back in time, as the park is home to the Saugus Train Station and several other historically significant structures that have been rescued and relocated to the site by the SCV Historical Society.
