Inscription.  
These barns were built in the 1940s on the 5000-acre cattle ranch in the southwest corner of Simi Valley. The ranch had been known by many names through the years. It was Cañada Verde during Spanish Rancho times, then shortened to the Verde. Names associated there were McCoy and McNaughton, and the Taylor Ranch Co.

These two barns were moved here in the early 1980s, when the area, now known as Wood Ranch, was developed into the housing we see today. (Marker Number 93.)
