Agoura Hills is a city in Los Angeles County, California. It is located in the eastern Conejo Valley between the Simi Hills and the Santa Monica Mountains. It is approximately 30 miles (48 km) northwest of Downtown Los Angeles.
The area was first settled by the Chumash Native Americans around 10,000 years before present.
By 1900, Agoura Hills was being used as a popular stage stop for travelers along the Camino Real because of its natural spring at the foothills of Ladyface Mountain, one of Agoura Hills' defining geographic features. Rapid growth occurred in the Agoura Hills area starting in the late 1960s, in the wake of the construction of the Ventura Freeway section of U.S. Route 101 through the city's heart, an action that isolated the northern half of the city from the south. The first housing tracts started in Agoura were Hillrise, Liberty Canyon and Lake Lindero. Growth continued at a rapid pace during the 1970s. Schools were built and much of downtown was erected.
Agoura Hills is home to The Canyon Club, a highly regarded concert venue that hosts national and regional touring acts.
