Located in Agoura Hills, California near Malibu Creek State Park, Paramount Ranch served as a Hollywood filming location and outdoor studio for Paramount Pictures. This cinematic history of the ranch is now preserved by the National Park Service as part of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The park’s main attraction and most interesting facet is Western Town, a couple blocks of prop buildings used from the 1950s to 1990s as an outdoor set for film and television show. The National Parks Service took ownership of the ranch in the 1980s and still permits filming in the park. The largest recent production, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, filmed in Western Town and elsewhere in Paramount Ranch from 1992 to 1997. The National Parks Service keeps a thorough list of projects filmed on the property, dating back to 1927.
