In the Gabrielino Indian language, Pacoima means “Running Water.” When the Pacoima area was first settled, there were a multitude of powerful streams running down from the foothills into the lowland area we now know as the Pacoima area.
Pacoima’s main thoroughfare during its expansion in the 19th century was a road first known as Taylor Avenue (after President Taylor); then, it became Pershing Street (after General John J. Pershing); finally, it retained its final name as we know it today: Van Nuys Boulevard.
Like many of the other burgeoning San Fernando Valley neighborhoods, leading up to the 20th century Pacoima was mostly known for its agricultural contributions; specifically, olives, citrus trees, peaches, and poultry farms.
Today, Pacoima is a neighborhood featuring an honest, hardworking community that has given rise to figures such as the notable character actor Danny Trejo.
