History

In 1881, a large portion of what was previously two Mexican land grants, was purchased by Andrew Russell. After the ranch traded hands twice, once in 1925 to William Randolph and then again to Fred Albertson in 1943, the American-Hawaiian Steamship Company bought the 12,000 acre ranch for $32 million. In cooperation with Prudential Insurance Company the area was commissioned for the preparation of a master plan community. The motto became "city in the country." From that point forward Westlake Village has been a community dedicated to preserving the natural environment of the area. The members of the Westlake Village community have deviated little, if any, from these original plans resulting in a beautiful city that has all the amenities of a modern community while preserving the natural beauty of the area.
