The
culture

Encino has a history that dates back to 1769 when Spanish-European travelers on an expedition ventured up the Sepulveda Pass and stayed two nights at a village near what is now Los Encinos State Historic Park. A Franciscan missionary travelling with the expedition named the area “El Valle de Santa Catalina de Bononia de Los Encinos.” All that remained later was the name Encino.
