In the days when the San Fernando Valley was home to horse ranches and orchards, it was a common practice to give romantic Spanish names to property. Rancho Cordellera del Norte is one such place. From an agricultural compound established in the 1920s, today's rancho was developed by its second owners, Carl Schaefer Dentzel and his wife Elizabeth Waldo Dentzel. Carl Dentzel was a community activist who worked for the naming of Northridge.
