Simi Valley history

Simi Valley was once inhabited by Chumash Indians. Along the coast they had an abundant supply of fish from the ocean. They ate seeds from sage, acorns from the oak trees, and small animals. They were very skilled in making wooden bowls. Some writers think that the name of Simi Valley came from the Chumash word "Shimiji", meaning little white clouds.

El Rancho Simi was the earliest Spanish colonial land grant within Ventura and Santa Babara Counties. It was one of the largest lands, but later when Mexico became independent from Spain, land was handed out much more freely.

First was the Colony, or town of Simi. For a brief time, its postal address was known as Simiopolis, though it was soon shortened again to Simi. The first public school was built in 1890 on the Northeast, however, it was torn down in 1926. There was also a great deal of destruction caused by the flood of 1952.

Southern California had a high fire risk (which broke out in several fires across the southland) in October 2003. It was unusually hot for the time of the year, as well as there were high winds, therefore many fires spread rapidly in a short time. The fire that burnt in the hills of Simi Valley destroyed several schools and one park, as well as endangered the Ronald Reagan Library.
