The City of Los Angeles annexed Sunland in June 1926. For many years, Shadow Hills remained rural and largely undeveloped because its hills and "rock-hard" soil made it difficult to build.
The community of Shadow Hills is located in the northwestern Verdugo Mountains, near the western end of the Crescenta Valley. It is north of the city of Burbank and southeast of the Hansen Dam Reservoir.
Shadow Hills falls within Census Tract 103300.

Property owners association
The neighborhood's residents formed the Shadow Hills Property Owners Association in the mid-1960s to fight the planned routing of a Foothill Freeway offramp through the heart of the neighborhood. This would have run along McBroom Street and two segments of Wheatland Avenue, from Wentworth Avenue to Sunland Boulevard. This organization persuaded the Los Angeles Planning Commission to abandon the proposed route for the offramp, and so preserved the neighborhood's semi-rural character. The Association continues to function today.
