Acton, California

Founded in 1887 by gold miners who were working in the Red Rover Mine, the town of Acton was once considered for the State Capital of California. In 1889, Acton's first hotel and saloon, the 49er, was opened and you can still tie your horse on a side rail there today.

A place to call Home

With only 8000 residents and spanning over 39.3 square miles, there is a desire for Acton to continue to remain rural. With limited construction, limited expansion and limited commercial interests, Acton plans to be a haven for space, wildlife and natural beauty for many years to come.

The Acton Town Council’s regularly scheduled meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at the Acton/Agua Dulce Library and begin at 6:30 pm.
