The prestigious 2017 award recognizes the Arboretum’s “proactive” historic preservation. The L.A. Conservancy described the Arboretum’s Cultural Landscape Report as a “vital document” that “summarizes the history of the site, allowing for greater understanding of how to identify and protect these resources.” We thank the Dextra Baldwin McGonagle Foundation for its support of this project.

A recent comprehensive assessment of the landmark Cottage was completed by Peyton Hall and his team at Historic Resources Group in Pasadena. Formally known as a Historic Structure Report, the assessment followed national preservation guidelines and developed a plan to care for the Cottage. We thank the Dextra Baldwin McGonagle Foundation for its generous support of this study. Dextra Baldwin McGonagle (1901-1967) was the daughter of Anita M. Baldwin and the granddaughter of Elias Jackson “Lucky” Baldwin. Click here to download the report.
