About Arcadia Homes & Real Estate
People have always wanted to settle down in the beautiful area of Arcadia. Over 3000 years ago the Tongva-Gabrielino Native American population thrived here since the area offers rich, ripe land perfect for hunters and gatherers. Hugo Reid was one of the first settlers of European origin. He was awarded the land by the Spanish government and succeeded in raising vast amounts of cattle in this green and fertile landscape. In 1875 a large area of land was bought by Elias J. “Lucky” Baldwin who started to erect buildings and cultivating the wild for farming. Soon a small rural city had developed Arcadia.
