Information About Independent Living in Ventura

Information About Independent Living in Ventura

The city of Ventura originated as a Spanish mission founded in 1782 by Father Junipero Serra. By the late 1800s it had a strong oil-producing industry yielding 90,000 barrels a day. It later became the center of citrus farming because of the region’s fertile soil, which proved conducive to large-scale farming. The construction of major highways near Ventura made it more accessible, facilitating a period of rapid growth. In fact, Ventura’s population has quadrupled in the past 20 years.
