What was once the humble north end of San Fernando Road is set to become Newhall's Main Street, part of an "historic old town," reports The Signal, with a "visitor-friendly boulevard" and a "a landscaping makeover intended to reflect Newhall's natural environment and its early Hollywood-inspired history." Indeed, this corner of Santa Clarita was home to silent star William S. Hart and the location of Frank Sinatra's Suddenly (1954), among others. The city even plans street lamps that emulate hitching posts. Yee haw! Construction on 12 blocks, part of a 15-year plan for Newhall, begins in July.
