Toluca Lake - Campo De Cahuenga Reenactment
Campo De Cahuenga, January 18
Discover the hidden historical gem nestled beneath a bustling intersection and serene parkland – the Campo de Cahuenga Memorial Park, a testament to Los Angeles' rich past.
Birthplace of California
Serving as the birthplace of California, this site, labeled as Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument No. 29 in 1964 and California State Historical Landmark No. 151 in 1935, stands proudly on Lankershim Boulevard, just opposite Universal City Studios in North Hollywood.
Offering a journey through five pivotal phases of California history, including the Spanish Mission and Mexican Rancho periods, the American Acquisition, the Butterfield-Overland Stage Coach stop, and a Civil War encampment for Union troops, Campo de Cahuenga holds the secrets of our historical roots.
Replica Adobe Ranch
The park features a Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival style replica "adobe" ranch house, a testament to the city's commitment to preserving this heritage.
Managed by the City of Los Angeles's Department of Recreation and Parks in collaboration with the Campo de Cahuenga Historical Memorial Association, this interpretive center brings history to life.
Treaty of Cahuenga
Walk the grounds where the Treaty of Cahuenga was signed in 1847, marking the end of conflict between the United States and Mexico over the southwest territory.
Explore the foundations of the original adobe, unearthed during the construction of the Metro B Line subway, preserved as an exhibit within the park. Campo de Cahuenga is not just a site; it's a living testament to our shared history, registered on the National Register of Historic Places.
Join us each January for a captivating re-enactment of this pivotal event, a true must-see!
