Description: Designed by A. A. Bennett for entertaining, the cottage was constructed by Elias Jackson (‘Lucky’) Baldwin in 1881. Since there was no kitchen, meals were served from the nearby adobe (built by Hugo Reid in 1839) where Baldwin actually lived. The building was restored and dedicated May 18,1954 as part of Los Angeles State and County Arboretum.
