The name Cahuenga comes from a Tongva village named Kawé’nga, probably meaning "at the mountain".

It was the site of two major battles: the Battle of Cahuenga Pass in 1831 (a fight between local settlers and the Mexican-appointed governor and his men; two deaths), and the Battle of Providencia or Second Battle of Cahuenga Pass in 1845 (between locals over whether to secede from Mexico; one horse and one mule killed).[2] Both were on the San Fernando Valley side near present-day Studio City, and cannonballs are still occasionally found during excavations in the area.[3] Along the route of the historic El Camino Real, the historic significance of the pass is also marked by a marker along Cahuenga Blvd. which names the area Paseo de Cahuenga.
