MAJOR RENOVATION TO BEGIN AT CAMPO DE CAHUENGA - SIX MONTH CLOSURE EXPECTED
CAMPO DE CAHUENGA
"The Most Important Historic Site in Southern California"
California's treasure, the Campo de Cahuenga is about to experience a major 21st century upgrade. The museum building
(erected in the 1950s) was constructed adjacent to the ruins of original Spanish Rancho Era structures. Campo de Cahuenga marks the location where California was ceded to the United States of America by the government of Mexico.
The museum is expected to be closed for six months. State-of-the-art improvements will be made to both the building and the grounds.
A major fiesta is being planned for the re-opening.
