In 1875, “Lucky” Baldwin, a San Francisco capitalist purchased some 8,000 acres of the original Rancho Santa Anita for $200,000, an extent encompassing the present-day communities of Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Monrovia, El Monte, Baldwin Park, and Temple City. A major figure in nineteenth century California, Baldwin had made a fortune in the 1870s from the Comstock mines of Nevada, and used his newly-acquired wealth to invest in California real estate.
On May 20th, 1923, an article in the Los Angeles Times announced Walter P. Temple’s plans (one of the wealthiest individuals in Los Angeles at the time) for a new town, declaring “Site for New Town Acquired.” Temple had purchased approximately 300 acres of land a few miles east of Alhambra, which had been part of Lucky Baldwin’s vast Rancho Santa Anita, for a sum of $500,000. This land is now knows as Temple City.
6306 Golden West is a home built in 1925 and dates back to the “Lucky” Baldwin era and brings with it all the Old World charm and character. This year, it has undergone extensive remodeling, and now boasts all the modern conveniences of the 21st century and is waiting for a special homebuyer to make it their own.
