Campo de Cahuenga in North Hollywood, Californiamarker, near Cahuenga Passmarker, was an adobe farmhouse on the Rancho Verdugo where the Treaty of Cahuenga was signed between Lieutenant Colonel John C. Frémont and General Andrés Pico in 1847, ending hostilities in California between Mexicomarker and the United Statesmarker. The subsequent Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo of 1848, ceding California, New Mexico, and Arizona (but not Texas, since it had seceded from Mexico in 1836, declared itself a republic, and joined the union in 1845) to the United States, formally ended the Mexican-American War.
The original adobe structure was demolished in 1900. The city of Los Angelesmarker provided funds for the purchase of the property in 1923, and a replica farmhouse built by the city following an effort led by Irene T. Lindsay, then President of the San Fernando Valley Historical Society, was dedicated on November 2 1950. It is now a park and interpretive center managed by the Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation in partnership with the Campo de Cahuenga Historical Memorial Association. Campo de Cahuenga is registered on the National Register of Historic Places, and is designated California Historical Landmark No. 151 and City of Los Angeles City Cultural Historical Monument No. 29.

The foundations of the original adobe were unearthed beneath Lankershim Boulevard during construction of the Metro Red Line subway. The parts of the foundations within the park are preserved as an exhibit, and the "footprint" of the foundations under the street and sidewalk is marked by decorative pavement.

Campo de Cahuenga is located at 3919 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, Californiamarker, across from Universal Studios.

Campo de Cahuenga is often confused with the nearby Rancho Cahuenga, an inholding within the Rancho Providenciamarker land grant, now part of Burbankmarker.

The building is used by various organizations for special programs and regular meetings, and is open with a docent on Saturdays.
