The scenic, rocky Simi Hills near Chatsworth, California are rich in legends of bandits and buried treasure, train robberies, perilous stage rides, and ancient villages. This book offers an armchair view of the exciting past through archaeology and history. The Santa Susana Stage Road—part of the Butterfield Overland Stage Route—provides a passage through time, leading readers from the Late Prehistoric period to the historical period. Through archaeological survey, test excavations, and archival research, the authors explore stage stops, quarries, and Native American communities at the boundary of the the Chumash, Gabrielino, and Tataviam cultures.
