The Valley has a population of approximately one and one-half million people -- if it were a city unto itself, the Valley would be the sixth largest city in the United States! It would be larger than San Diego, Detroit, or Dallas. The Valley's population is higher than such states as Hawaii, Maine, and Idaho, and is equivalent to the size of Chicago.
The San Fernando Valley is rich in people resources. Its diverse and talented residents are among the best educated in the country. The history and culture of its people are also of note. The San Fernando Valley Historical Society maintains many documents, photographs, and other important historical artifacts relating to the history of the San Fernando Valley, at the historic Pico Adobe in Mission Hills, California.
