The city is named for Henry T. Oxnard, the founder of American Crystal Sugar Company who built a multi-million dollar factory on the inland plain in the late 19th century. Oxnard the town grew up around the factory, and the historic district, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is now named for its founder.
