Baker Ranch Rodeo, Saugus, c. 1926

Saugus is a neighborhood in Santa Clarita, California. Saugus was one of four communities (along with Valencia, Newhall, and Canyon Country) that merged in 1987, to create the city of Santa Clarita. Saugus is named after the town of Saugus, Massachusetts, the hometown of Henry Newhall, upon whose land the town was originally built. The Saugus Cafe, on San Fernando Road, was established in 1887[2] and is among the oldest restaurants in Los Angeles County.[3]

Etymology

Saugus was first named Newhall by Henry M. Newhall, who had bought the eastern half of the Del Valle family's Rancho San Francisco from a series of speculators. After he moved the town south in 1879, he renamed its original site for his birthplace, Saugus, Massachusetts. [4]
