Description
Hugo Reid Adobe -- Built in 1840, the Hugo Reid Adobe was the first permanent structure built on Rancho Santa Anita. By the time Lucky Baldwin acquired the Rancho, an L-shaped wing had been added to the original three-room structure. It was here, overlooking the lake where Hugo Reid had built his adobe some 70 years previously, that Lucky Baldwin died in March, 1909. In 1959-60, the Adobe was restored. It remains where it has always been, just south of the lake on what is now the grounds of the Arboretum.

The Hugo Reid Adobe still stands in disrepair at the Los Angeles County Arboretum five years after preservation and restoration efforts should have started. At issue is whether it should be preserved as the Hugo Reid Adobe or reinterpreted as the Elias J. ("Lucky") Baldwin Adobe.
