About Piru Gateway

Piru is a small community in northeast Ventura County just 15 minutes west of Interstate 5 and Santa Clarita. It began as a farming town in the late 1800’s that served as a citrus stop for the Southern Pacific Railroad. Paralleling El Camino Real (now known as Highway 126), the rail line was built from east to west – Los Angeles to Ventura. The town of Piru was laid out in 1888 by David C. Cook, a publisher of religious books from Illinois who had moved west for his health. Cooked planned to create a “Second Garden of Eden” and planted over 900 acres of oranges, apricots, walnuts, olives and other fruit and nut trees.
