“A site used in countless films & TV series”
In 1910, Edwin and Harold Janss purchased about 10,000 acres of land in what is now central Thousand Oaks from the heirs of John Edwards who had purchased the land from the de la Guerra heirs (all of the land was originally a portion of the Rancho Conejo Land Grant). The ranch, called the Janss Conejo Ranch, was utilized as a farm and to raise thoroughbred race horses. Between 1951 and 1956, the Janss brothers began selling off approximately 300 acres of land for development. Beginning in 1955, they also began buying up all the property they could for investment purposes (reselling the land later for development). They purchased, among other land holdings, the Sam Hill Ranch, the Hunt Salto Ranch, the Canyon Ranch, the Running Springs Ranch, and the Borchard Ranch. A western town was built for the 1967 film "Welcome to Hard Times" on land that is now a part of Cal Lutheran. Located nearby was "The Rifleman" ranch set. To the south of Cal Lutheran, in what is now the Wildwood Park region, is where a major portion of filming was done.
If you want to experience a day as a "cowboy/cowgirl in Texas" then visit Janss Conejo Ranch.
Within nature and hilly surroundings, you and your family members can horse ride these wonderful and well cared horses that exist at the ranch.
This became one of the greatest experiences we had. I would fully recommend it to everyone!
