Weeks-Building-1927This year Winnetka is celebrating its 100th year. In 1920, the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce requested that Charles Weeks come to the San Fernando Valley to establish a series of one-acre egg farms. The “poultry colony” Weeks created in the Winnetka area of the valley eventually developed into a small farming community named Weeks Poultry Colony. In 1922, Weeks renamed the colony Winnetka, after a farm he owned in Winnetka, Illinois.

To celebrate our diverse and amazing neighborhood, our Outreach Committee will be creating videos sharing the stories, events, businesses and people that make Winnetka the unique place that we all call home.
