About Ventura River Valley Communities
The Ventura River Valley communities of Meiners Oaks (population 3,751) and Mira Monte (population 6,845) are located between the cities of Ventura and Ojai.
Meiners Oaks is named after German native John Meiners, who immigrated to America in 1848 and established a successful brewing company in Milwaukee. In the 1870s, he acquired the land that would become Meiners Oaks as payment for a debt. Meiners established a ranch of several hundred acres growing lemons, oranges, plums, apricots and apples, as well as oats, wheat, barley and more. Meiners lived on his ranch intermittently until his death in 1898.
Mira Monte is the Spanish word for “Mountain View.”
