2009 - The Year of Valley History
One of the most important historical sites in western America was broken into on July 26th, 2009. GSD police responded to Campo de Cahuenga's security alarm approximately 9:47 pm.
On a first walk through this morning, it appears that nothing was harmed, vandalized or missing in the structure. A window pane, however was broken in order to give the intruded access to the place where America's dream of Manifest Destiny was completed.
This break in, while apparently little more than a minor incident, demonstrates once again the vulnerability of historic structures that are closed for long periods of time. Each delay in completing the restoration of Campo de Cahuenga and the moving of the precious old Weddington House to its new home in North Hollywood Park gives the impression to vandals and vagrants that a structure isn't being monitored.
