Tejon Ranch celebrates its 175th anniversary with history predating the state of California.

The ranch got its name from Lt. Francisco Ruiz who called the region El Tejon, meaning badger, after his soldiers, sometime around 1806, found a dead badger at the mouth of the canyon. Ruiz also named Canada de las Uvas (Grapevine Canyon), because of the abundance of grapevines found there.

To this day, motorists call that steep grade on Interstate 5 "the Grapevine."
