Known as the "Centinela Adobe", this ranch house is considered one of the best preserved smaller adobes in Los Angeles County. Built in 1834 by Don Ignacio Machado, it was the headquarters of Rancho Aguaje de la Centinela. The Centinela Adobe is considered the birthplace of Inglewood, the modern city which was formed upon the land grant. Today the Historical Society of the Centinela Valley, in cooperation with the Inglewood Recreation and Community Services Department, maintains and exhibits the Centinela Adobe Complex at 7643 Midfield which includes the Adobe, 1887 Daniel Freeman Land Office and the Centinela Valley Heritage and Research Center.
