Centinela Adobe Tour and Talk
Saturday, June 3, 2017
10:00 am to 12:30 pm
The HSSC is co-sponsoring a tour of the Centinela Adobe with a talk about the Avila Family. This event is co-sponsored by the Historical Society of Centinela Valley.
The Centinela Adobe, also known as La Casa de la Centinela, is a Spanish Colonial style adobe house built in 1834. It is one of the 43 surviving adobes within Los Angeles County. The Adobe was the seat of the 2,000 acre Rancho Aguaje de la Centinela, a Mexican Alta California era land grant. The Rancho, granted to Ygnacio Machado, was partitioned from the much larger Rancho Sausal Redondo (22,500 acres), which was granted to Antonio Ygnacio Avila.
After a tour of the adobe, Dr. Donna Schuele (Cal State LA) will present “The Roots of Inglewood: The Avila Family and the Fight for Rancho Sausal Redondo.”
The Centinela Adobe is located at 7634 Midfield Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90045
After the tour and talk, we will meet for an optional no-host lunch at Pann’s Restaurant at:
6710 La Tijera Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90045
