HISTORY 

The Spanish arrived two hundred years ago in the area, conquered and occupied the San Fernando Area. The Spanish mission ruled the way of life from 1769 to 1822. Then the Spanish rule was replaced by the Mexican who ruled the area for the next twenty-four years. The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce requested Charles Weeks come to the San Fernando Valley to establish a series of one-acre egg farms in 1920. 

Mr. Weeks created the ‘Poultry Colony’ in the Winnetka area of the valley and then developed it into a small farming community named Weeks Poultry Colony. In 1922, Weeks founded Winnetka and it has remained distinct entirely since. Present-day Winnetka is bounded on the North by Tordoff Street and the South by Victory Boulevard. DeSoto Avenue marks the western boundary and Corbin Avenue the eastern.
