History & History Related Items

Arcadia history:

The area began to blossom in the 1930's when the first residential subdivisions began to be built. Before this time, Arcadia was mainly an agricultural area. The first Mayor of Arcadia was Elias Jackson "Lucky" Baldwin was one of the large, early landowners in the northern portion of the Baldwin Ranch. This area is now known as Rancho Santa Anita and Santa Anita Oaks. The southern portion of Arcadia was also changing from poultry and produce farms into less exclusive homes.

After World War II, the boom that occurred all over the nation was also felt in Arcadia with huge growth. From 1940 to 1960 the population of Arcadia quadrupled and then some! More than 10,000 homes were built during this time period. The city has continued to grow, though not at the rapid post-war rates.

At present, growth is still being experienced in Arcadia, but this growth represents not only homes, but also office, hotel and retail projects. This type of growth assures Arcadia of a prominent place in the coming 21st century.
The incorporation date of Arcadia: Aug. 5, 1903
