Lucky Baldwin Cottage

 

Lucky Baldwin was one of the great characters of Southern California history during the late 19th century and early 20th century. He was a pioneer and real estate tycoon who owned the land that would become Arcadia, Monrovia, and Baldwin Hills.

Huell visits the Queen Anne Cottage at the Los Angeles Arboretum, which was built on his former property in 1885, and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
