Inscription.  William C. Masson received a land patent in 1904 for 160 acres during the "Homesteading Days” of the early 1900s. The Masson House was strategically located on Old Topanga Canyon Road, the only route to Santa Monica, where the Port of Los Angeles Long Wharf was built in the 1890s. Area settlers benefited because goods were accessible via transport along this road. An excellent example of a homestead home built during this time period, the Masson House is the only remaining original homestead in Calabasas, and one of only a few remaining in Southern California.
