History of Arcadia

Founded by Elia Jackson “Lucky” Baldwin in 1903, the city of Arcadia was first developed with entertainment in mind. Reminiscent of Las Vegas today, Arcadia was best well known for having entertainment for 24 hours a day. This lawless reputation began to change as the poultry industry began to grow more prominent in the area. After World War 2, the city of Arcadia began to experience great growth in population.

Today remnants of Arcadia’s past status as an entertainment destination can still be seen thanks to the Santa Anita Racetracks. Arcadia today is a destination for shopping and leisure. With a growing international population, cultural offerings are plentiful than ever before.
