Santa Clarita Valley History In Pictures

Demolition of Moore's Sub Shop
Newhall, California


A downtown Newhall icon since 1972, Moore's submarine sandwich shop at 24158 San Fernando Road (aka Main Street) was a substandard, asbestos-filled building that has stood vacant since 2005 when its owner sold it to the city of Santa Clarita for $760,000. It was demolished Wednesday (July 11, 2007) to make way for a children's museum or similar structure to attract visitors to a revitalized Old Town Newhall, where city officials also cut the ceremonial ribbon Wednesday to mark the completion of the first phase of roadwork. SCVTV's Megan Mann reports.

Note: The public rejected the new back-in angle parking seen here, and it was soon replaced with traditional angle parking. The area where the interviews are conducted became the Old Town Newhall Library in 2012.
