All About Castaic, CA
Castaic, California is a community in the Los Angeles County area that is unincorporated. Now, depending on when you moved to this area, you may have different ideas about how to pronounce it: either Castec, or Kashtiq. This is a throughway for most people: thousands will pass through as they go to or from Los Angeles. However, for the people who live here, it is simply known as home. The name originally comes from documents dating back to the 1800s when it was called “Castec” and was represented by the Native American work “Kashtiq” meaning “wet spot” or “eyes.” Castaic began when the Southern Pacific set up a railroad passing through the area, naming it “Castaic Junction.” Today, the area covers 7.3 square miles that include both the Val Verde and Chiquito Canyon areas. It includes the Castaic Lake, a hydroelectric plant, and many boating communities. While most people see it as a pass-through town, those who live in Castaic love it here. Most people are in families, making the population quite spread out. Still, there is a very good school system that many people move to the area to take advantage of - and they just stay.
