The City of Moorpark is situated in a valley originally inhabited by The Chumash Indians. Moorpark was founded in 1900 when the application for a post office was submitted. The town grew after the 1904 completion of a 7,369 foot tunnel through the Santa Susana Mountains which allowed the Southern Pacific Railroad to establish a depot there, which lasted until 1965. Moorpark was not incorporated as a city until July 1, 1983.
