Though not formally incorporated until 1991, Calabasas has a history that dates back much further.
It’s All In A Name
The story of how Calabasas got its name goes back to one of the first settlers in the late 1700s. According to town legend, Juan Bautista de Anza was traveling from Arizona to San Francisco. On his journey, he passed through what is now known as Calabasas.
