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.
