Early History
The area now known as​ Tarzana was originally part of​ the San Fernando Mission, which was established in​ 1797 by Spanish settlers and missionaries, who eventually displaced the indigenous population .​
Later on the area was seized by Mexico and then sometime afterwards, the United States, at​ which point the area came to​ be part of​ a​ sequential order of​ large cattle ranches owned by the wealthy and powerful local elites .​
Beginning in​ the 1870s, the area was purchased by investors who transformed it​ into a​ large-scale wheat farm operation.
In 1909 the surrounding area was purchased by the Los Angeles Suburban Homes Company .​
General Harrison Gray Otis, founder and publisher of​ the Los Angeles Times, had invested in​ the company, while also purchasing 550 acres in​ the center of​ modern-day Tarzana .​
Another investor established a​ small town called Runnymede in​ the general vicinity and allocated the surrounding land for small poultry ranches and berry farms.
In 1915 Edgar Rice Burroughs, best known as​ the author of​ the Tarzan stories, purchased Otis’ land upon which he built a​ large home, and renamed the property, Tarzana Ranch .​
Burroughs subdivided and sold the land for residential development, while the neighboring small farms were also converted to​ residential areas .​
In 1927, local residents renamed the town Tarzana in​ honor of​ Burroughs and his famous literary character.
