Save Baldwin Lake
Baldwin Lake History Lives Here marker dedication is slated for September 2018. The National Register of Historic Places lists the 1885 Queen Anne Cottage, matching Coach Barn and nine surrounding acres worthy of recognition and protection. Four of the nine acres comprise Baldwin Lake. A special invitation-only reception will be held to unveil the beautiful marker donated by the Arcadia Historical Society. The lakeside event is cosponsored by the L.A. Arboretum Foundation.
Your support will help restore the beauty of Baldwin Lake, a beloved and magnificent part of the Arboretum's natural and cultural heritage.
Baldwin Lake in the 1880s was a pristine body of water where visitors drifted leisurely in boats, fish flourished in its deep waters and a variety of water fowl found refuge. Much has changed.
The Lake is home for resident and migratory birds as well as aquatic creatures. Other species find refuge along the shorelines and nearby vegetation.
