Back in the late 1800s when Elias J. “Lucky” Baldwin owned the land that would become the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden, it was a time of ranch hands and gamblers as well as style makers of Victorian sensibilities. 365 Things To Do Around Pasadena invites you to join a celebration of the rough and refined days of Lucky Baldwin Saturday, April 30, and Sunday, May 1.
