Your Museum community believes a community with a population of over 53,000 deserves a great Museum of history and culture. Studio City came about just about the time the great Los Angeles Aqueduct was completed in 1913. One of the owners of the L.A. Suburban Homes Company, "General" Moses Hazeltine Sherman named much of the area after himself.
