Caption reads, "This is Queen Anne Cottage at the Arboretum. It was built in 1881 by E. J. "Lucky" Baldwin and designed by Albert A. Bennett. The house has been restored and furnished with authentic pieces. Volunteers today keep the showplace immaculate." Photo dated: May 6, 1967.; After Baldwin's death in 1909, the ranch land fell into the hands of Baldwin's daughter Anita, who in 1936, sold some acres to Harry Chandler of the Los Angeles Times. Chandler owned a real estate company, Rancho Santa Anita, Inc., which oversaw the former Baldwin land and developed subdivisions in the area. In 1947, 111 acres of the former Santa Anita Ranch were purchased from Rancho Santa Anita, Inc. by the State of California and County of Los Angeles to develop the arboretum.
