Mr. Henry Mayo Newhall was a very enterprising businessman who bought up land in 1875, for only $2 an acre of the vast 470,000 acres of the Rancho San Francisco, which was owned by Spanish missionaries in the early 1800s. Ranches back then were having a tough time due to drought and was selling off their land. Mr. Newhall was a savvy business and was purchasing default lands loans. It was during this time he sold land to the Southern Pacific's Railroad line because he knew by having a train station would bring commerce, people, and a town. Southern Pacific did move in and the town started popping around the station and it was named, "Newhall."
