Santa Clarita is the site of the first commercially successful oil well in the western United States. The oil well, known as Pico Number 4, became operational in 1876 and ceased operating in 1990 in a place called Mentryville at the north end of present-day Santa Clarita Woodlands Park. Pico Number 4 holds the world record as the longest continually operating oil well. With a bevy of oil wells, which at its peak, produced nearly 100,000 barrels annually, Mentryville was an active community during the peak years of oil production and until the early 1930s. For many years, Mentryville stood as a ghost town that was often used by Hollywood studios as a location for movie and television shoots. In 1995, the landowner, Chevron, donated the area to the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority, a joint powers agency headed by the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, which has since established Mentryville as a state historical site. The movie and television industry continues to use Mentryville as a filming location.William S. Hart Regional Park
