Save Baldwin Lake


Latest News

The Arboretum thanks Arcadia Historical Society for its recent donation of an eye-catching “History Lives Here” marker now located on the eastern shore of Baldwin Lake. Featuring period photographs and postcards that document the Lake’s storied past, the marker represents a step into the future as community support builds to save this endangered historic resource. We anticipate receipt of construction and geotechnical documents in the future as an important next step in plans to restore the Lake’s granite perimeter wall to its 1880's period of historic significance.

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.
