His name was selected for the first post office, but the name was slightly changed. The City of Agoura Hills was incorporated in 1982, but the remaining areas, which are in Los Angeles County, continue to be identified as Agoura or unincorporated Agoura. Agoura was a part of the Rancho Las Virgenes, a 17,760 acre Spanish land grant in the Santa Monica Mountains and Simi Hills.
