Westchester Breezeway Exhibit – Panel 4

Centinela Adobe

The Centinela Adobe, posted to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and still standing at the eastern edge of Westchester, was the first home built within the open lands surrounding the Santa Monica Bay from what is now Malibu to Palos Verdes. Following the Mexican War of Independence, as Spanish Rule ceded to Mexico in 1822, Ignacio Machado receives permission to build La Casa de la Centinela in 1829 and completes construction in 1834.
