Author: Conejo Al
Subject: Close enough?

Well it was nice to see snapshots that accurately portray portions of the Conejo Valley/Thousand Oaks.
Some of the info is peculiar and makes it obvious that whomever wrote this likely never has been in the Conejo Valley and has no real knowledge of the history of the area. Inaccuracies such as this obviously detract from credibility of anything on the site. However, the shots are from this general region and the names Janss, Conejo Valley, and Thousand Oaks are accurate whether or not they are properly described in time or space. American Hawaiian went bankrupt duping the citizens of the already incorporated City of Thousand Oaks into believing that they could create a housing development straddling the Ventura/Los Angeles County line to create a neighborhood called Westlake that later became the city of Westlake Village. Never did American Hawaiian have anything to do with Thousand Oaks other than convincing its citizens to not object to Westlake. Westlake was built on property previously owned by Randolph Hearst and historically known as Russell Ranch. Wagon Train, Bonanza and many other westerns were shot in the area.
