Photograph of Saugus Garage, circa 1920's.

Saugus was named for the Massachusetts birthplace of local land owner Henry Mayo Newhall. Also known as "Surrey," the town took shape in 1887 when the Saugus Train Station was erected at the approximate site of the old Newhall Depot. (The town of Newhall and its depot were established in 1876 near the intersection of present-day San Fernando Road and Magic Mountain Parkway. The town and depot picked up and moved two miles south, to Sixth Street and Railroad Avenue, in January-February 1878.)
