Old Town Newhall Comes Alive Between March and October With Thursdays at Newhall
Town Center, Bridgeport, Centre Point. Depending on where you live, you might consider any one of these spots the “center” of the Santa Clarita Valley. However, once
upon a time, Main Street in Newhall was THE population hub in the Santa Clarita Valley.
The area we now refer to as “Old Town Newhall” was the original business and population center, dating back to the late 1800’s when Henry Mayo Newhall leased land to the railway for one dollar. This brought people, commerce, farmers and families to the SCV, and the town sprung up around the rail lines that still traverse the valley by way of Railroad Avenue and Soledad Canyon today.
