History of Sherman Oaks
Sherman Oaks was developed by Moses Hazeltine Sherman, who was a land developer and partner of the Los Angeles Suburban Homes Company. The company had previously subdivided a 1,000 acre plot of land, which later became Sherman Oaks. Each of the acres was sold at a cost of $780 in 1927. The boundaries for Sherman Oaks were later redrawn in 1991 after a group of homeowners living in the Chandler Estates area successfully petitioned a city councilmember. It was at this time that the boundaries were redrawn to span from Magnolia to Burbank Boulevard to the north and from Coldwater Canyon to Van Nuys Boulevard to the west. Other neighborhoods subsequently successfully petitioned to join Sherman Oaks.
