The City of Calabasas is the gateway to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. History includes stories of explorers and Indians as well as squatters and bandits. The rolling hills were once the home of the Chumash Indians. They depended on acorns from the surrounding oak trees which are now 500 to 700 years old. Some people say the word Calabasas is the Indian word for “where the wild geese fly” but the general consensus is that it came from the Spanish word for wild gourd or pumpkin.
