is a museum on the North Hollywood/Studio City border across the street from Universal City and marks the spot where the 1847 Treaty of Campo de Cahuenga was signed, which ended the Mexican-American War and paved the way for California to join the United States.
The museum was shut down a few years ago during construction of the Metro Rail at Universal Studios just under the Universal tower at Lankershim Boulevard and the Hollywood Freeway, and bus stops and parking lots were paved around the tiny museum. It has yet to fully reopen but has begun hosting special events like this one.
