Within the Santa Monica Mountains from its high point at the crest line, drops a ravine known as Benedict Canyon. Originally part of Rancho de las Aguas translated as “Ranch of the Waters”, Benedict Canyon was named by Edson A. Benedict, a storekeeper, and native from Boonville, Missouri. In 1868 Benedict took a homestead in the Canyon and with help from his wife and kids built an apiary, more commonly known as a bee yard. The hives from Benedict’s apiary were so bountiful that in one year the family was reported to have made a single shipment of more than 45,000 pounds of honey from the Santa Monica Pier.
Today, Benedict Canyon is well-known in popular culture for many reasons. The neighborhood first made headlines in 1969 when it became the site where the Manson Family murdered Sharon Tate at the now infamous 10050 Cielo Drive address. Numerous celebrities have occupied the residence since then, which was ultimately leveled with a new structure built in its place. Some of the neighborhood’s most noteworthy residents include Ann-Margret, Susan Berman, Jacqueline Bisset, Charlie Chaplin, Janice Dickinson, Barbara Eden, Heidi Fleiss, Jennifer Grey, Belinda Carlisle, Jean Harlow, Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Murphy, Roman Polanski, Gene Simmons, Tom Sizemore, Paul Stanley, Rudolph Valentino, Mark Wahlberg, and Kim Kardashian.
