Centinela Adobe, also known as La Casa de la Centinela, is an adobe house constructed in 1834. Operated as a museum by the Historical Society of Centinela Valley. It was the seat of the vast 25,000-acre (10,117 ha) Centinela Rancho. The adobe, which is the Centinela Valley's oldest residence, was built by Ignacio Machado in 1834. Since then, farmers, ranchers, a Scotsman and Inglewood's founding father, Daniel Freeman, have lived in the structure.
The building was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
