With the signing of the Treaty of Cahuenga, the United States of America fulfilled its people's dream of "Manifest Destiny". Here at the border between North Hollywood and Studio City, California, American became a nation extending from sea to shining sea. The table on which the agreement was signed is used here during the 2008 re-enactment celebration. At its 150th anniversary, an interior drawer was signed by then President of the Campo de Cahuenga Historical Memorial Association, Guy Weddington McCleary, television personality Huell Howser and many others.

The San Fernando Valley deserves a great Museum of history and culture.
