History

Encino is the primary city name, but also Van Nuys are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is Encino. Rancho Los Encinos (Ranch of Holm Oaks) was established in 1845 when a large parcel of former Mission San Fernando land was granted to three Mission Indians by governor Pio Pico. Many ranchos were created after the secularization of the California missions, which began in 1834. Encino derives its name from the rancho. The rancho is located in the San Fernando Valley, which was first explored by the Spanish Portolá expedition in 1769. It is located near what is now Los Encino State Historic Park.
