Santa Paula, California is located 65 miles northwest of Los Angeles and 14 miles east of Ventura and the coastline of the Pacific Ocean. Santa Paula is the geographical center of Ventura County, situated in the rich agricultural Santa Clara River Valley. Rolling hills and rugged mountain peaks in addition to orange, lemon and avocado groves surrounds the City. In fact, Santa Paula is referred to as the Citrus Capital of the World.


The Chumash Indians as the villages of Mupu and Srswa established the original community that has become known as Santa Paula. The land was later given away as part of a Spanish land grant to Rancho Santa Paula and Saticoy in 1840. In the 1860s, the area was subdivided into small farms. In 1880, oil was discovered in Santa Paula leading to the formation of the Union Oil Company in 1890. The City of Santa Paula was incorporated on April 22, 1902. In the early 1900s Santa Paula was considered the pre Hollywood film capital, the Queen of the Silver Screen. Even today, Santa Paula is noted for its movie personalities (silent and sound) who resided in and adjacent to the city and a TV or movie crew is not an unusual sight in the community. The City is a major distribution point for citrus fruits in the United States and is also noted for avocado producing and processing. The Community has a quaint, small town image, ideal climate and reasonable priced housing, which is why Santa Paulans refer to their community as Hometown USA. Santa Paula maintains its own identity and is in close proximity to the many tourist, recreational, and cultural activities that abound in Southern California.


Santa Paula covers an area of 4.6 square miles and has a population (as of 2000 census) of 29,100 which is 71.2% Hispanic or Latino, 26.4% White and 2.4% all other races. Santa Paula is California’s 232nd largest city.
