Reseda history

Reseda, California is located at the Latitude and Longitude coordinates of 34.2001° N, 118.5369° W. The US Postal Zip codes for Reseda are 91335 and 91337. It is situated in the San Fernando Valley, within the city of Los Angeles.

Reseda is bordered to the north by the community of Northridge, to the east by Lake Balboa and Tarzana, to the south by Encino, and the west by Winnetka and Canoga Park.

The area that is now Reseda was originally inhabited by Native American tribes, with evidence of their presence found in the region, including rock art.

Like much of the rest of the San Fernando Valley, Reseda has served mostly as a suburban neighborhood for Los Angeles since the late 1940s.

The land was colonized by the Spanish in the 18th century and was part of the Rancho Ex-Mission San Fernando Spanish land grant. After Mexico gained independence from Spain in 1821, the land came under Mexican control. Following the Mexican-American War and the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848, the land was ceded to the United States.

With the passage of the Homestead Act in 1862, settlers were granted ownership of land in the area, contingent upon living on the land and improving it for a period of five years.

Reseda became part of the City of Los Angeles in 1915 when the San Fernando Valley was annexed.

Today, Reseda is a diverse community with residential, commercial, and industrial areas, known for its parks, schools, and cultural amenities.
