Arcadia is a U.S. city in Los Angeles County, California that is located about convert|13|mi|km northeast of downtown Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley, at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. It is the site of the Santa Anita Park racetrack and home to the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 53,054. The estimate for 2005 is a population of 56,565.

Geography

Arcadia is located at coor dms|34|7|58|N|118|2|11|W|city (34.132688, -118.036491).GR|1

Arcadia is located convert|13|mi|km northeast of downtown Los Angeles. The city is bordered by five communities: Pasadena, Sierra Madre, San Marino, Monrovia, and Temple City.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 28.8 km² (11.1 mi²). 28.4 km² (11.0 mi²) of it is land and 0.3 km² (0.1 mi²) of it (1.08%) is water.

Demographics

Arcadia has experienced a tremendous demographic shift in recent years. A city that was almost uniformly Caucasian 30 years ago is now 45% Asian American. The transformation is linked to a rapid increase in wealth in Asian countries such as Taiwan, China, Korea and Japan. This has led to the immigration of many Asians to countries like the United States. Arcadia offers excellent public schools, which are seen by many young upper-middle class Asian immigrant families as a ticket to a good college, and eventually desirable careers for their children in America. The large, established Asian immigrant community and the relatively high quality of life are also attractive. Since the early 1990s, a growing number of Taiwanese-oriented businesses - housed in a handful of strip malls and old storefronts - have been appearing along and around Baldwin Avenue, due south of Huntington Drive, with a 99 Ranch Market, Arcadia Supermarket, and the popular Taiwan-based Din Tai Fung dumpling restaurant (the only U.S. branch in existence). Asian-American population growth has also been attributed to the exodus of established wealthy Taiwanese immigrants away from poorer Monterey Park, California to affluent Arcadia and neighboring San Gabriel (northern portion), San Marino, South Pasadena, and Temple City. Now the Taiwanese immigrant population in Arcadia is being increasingly joined by immigrants from Mainland China.

The majority of students in Arcadia Schools are of Asian ancestry (in the 2005-2006 school year, Arcadia High's student body was between 63-65% Asian), as the city's white population has a higher median age (non-Hispanic whites make up 24-26% of the AHS student body).

History

Arcadia's beginnings go back over 3,000 years to the Tongva ("Gabrielino") Indian tribe, whose inhabitants lived all over Southern California. These people were also known as the Gabrielinos, a name taken from the Spanish San Gabriel Mission (in present-day San Gabriel, California), and under whose control these people worked during the mission period in California. Arcadia's settlement of these Native Americans was known as Aleupkigna (or “Aluupkenga) (McCawley, William. "The First Angelinos: The Gabrielino Indians of Los Angeles". Malki Museum/Ballena Press, 1996) on what became the Rancho Santa Anita, one of many land grants created during Mexican rule of California (1821-1848). The Gabrielinos eventually died out due to Old World diseases.

The rancho period

Originally part of "Rancho Santa Anita", and owned by San Gabriel Mission, Mayor-Domo, Claudio Lopez. It was named after a family relation named "Anita Cota", on his wife's side.In 1839, a large area of land that included the present-day borders of Arcadia was sold to a Scottish immigrant, Hugo Reid. Reid documented the Native Americans in a series of letters written in 1852 (Reid, Hugo. "The Indians of Los Angeles County: Hugo Reid's Letters of 1853". Southwest Museum, 1968) and served as a delegate to California's Constitutional Convention in 1849.The land holding changed owners several times before being acquired by the real estate speculator and notorious womanizer Elias Jackson "Lucky" Baldwin in 1875. Baldwin purchased 8,000 acres (32 km²) of Santa Anita for $200,000. Upon seeing the area, Baldwin gasped “By Gads! This is paradise!”. Upon buying the land, Lucky chose to make the area his home and immediately started erecting buildings and cultivating the land for farming, orchards and ranches. In 1885, the main line of the Santa Fe Railroad, in which Baldwin was a stockholder, was opened through the ranch, making subdivision of part of the land into a town site practical. In 1889, on a site just north of the corner of First Avenue and St. Joseph Street, adjacent to the Santa Fe tracks, Baldwin opened the 35 room Hotel Oakwood to be the centerpiece of his new town.

Incorporation

By the turn of the century, Arcadia had a population nearing 500, and a booming economy that was somewhat based on entertainment, sporting, hospitality and gambling opportunities, including an early version of the Santa Anita race track. Baldwin went on to oversee Arcadia's incorporation in 1903 and became the city's first mayor. His daughter, Anita Baldwin, built a stately mansion named Anoakia in 1914 on 19 acres of land. Anita converted the home into "The Anoakia School for Girls". The school later became coeducational but moved out of Arcadia in 1990 after the Anoakia building was declared a fire trap and earthquake danger. The old estate became overgrown with weeds, and after an extended local debate and efforts to preserve the historic home, the Anoakia mansion, the oldest remaining private property in the city, was finally bulldozed to clear space for 31 luxury homes in 2000. The old estate featured numerous one-of-a-kind architectural features and a structure whose facade was a replica of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. Only the exterior wall and a guardhouse located at the south-east corner of the property remains to surround the "Anoakia Estates" housing development which occupies the land today. Murals and artifacts from the home are preserved in museums throughout California.During World War I, Arcadia was home to the U.S. Army's Ross Field Balloon School in what is now Los Angeles County Park. Here observers were trained to watch enemy activity from hot air balloons. After World War I, Arcadia's population grew and local businesses included many chicken ranches and other agricultural activities. During the 1920s and 1930s, Arcadia began its transition to the fine residential city that it is today as small farms and chicken ranches gave way to homes and numerous civic improvements, including a City Library and a City Hall. Scenes of many of Arcadia's interesting historic sites can be viewed in a series of [http://www.ci.arcadia.ca.us/home/index.asp?page=1416 historic watercolors] painted by local artists Edna Lenz and Justine Wishek on the website of the Arcadia Public Library.

Thoroughbred horse racing, which had flourished briefly under Lucky Baldwin until it was outlawed by the state of California in 1909, returned to Arcadia with the opening of the beautiful Santa Anita Park in December 1934 when racing was legalized again.

During World War II, Arcadia's Santa Anita Park racetrack became the site of the Santa Anita Assembly Center for the Japanese, where Japanese Americans were interned under President Franklin Roosevelt's Executive Order 9066 ("See: Japanese internment in the United States"). At one point, the assembly center at the racetrack was the largest Japanese American assembly center in the United States. 400 temporary barracks were constructed in the racetrack parking lot to house the prisoners. Internees lived three families to a barrack (or horse-stable in some cases), took group showers, lacked private bathrooms, and lived under 24-hour armed surveillance. Conditions were extremely difficult with each resident being given an “Army manufacture bed, one blanket and one straw tick” (McAdam, Pat and Snider, Sandy. "Arcadia: Where Ranch and City Meet", p. 147) The Assembly Center, which opened in April 1942, ran until the end of October 1943, when the internees were relocated inland to more permanent internment camps in Owens Valley, Utah, and Wyoming. In March 1943, Camp Santa Anita was established for 20,000 Army Ordnance troops. At the time, Arcadia's civic leaders were very vocal in their support of the internment policies of the Federal Government. ("See: Japanese internment in the United States")

Postwar period

The postwar boom saw Arcadia grow rapidly into a suburban residential community, with many of the chicken ranches being subdivided into home lots. Between 1940 and 1950, the population grew by more than two and a half times. The housing boom continued through the 1950s and 1960s and along with that growth came the necessary infrastructure of schools, commercial buildings, and expanded city services.

During the postwar boom, a modern commercial district developed along Baldwin Avenue south of Huntington Drive in west Arcadia. In 1951 this strip, called the West Arcadia Hub, was anchored by a new, locally owned department store called Hinshaw's. This was the first large department store to be built in Arcadia, and the largest in the western San Gabriel Valley outside the city of Pasadena. This development marked the beginning of Arcadia's gradual transformation into one of the leading shopping districts of the San Gabriel Valley.

In 1947, convert|111|acre|km2 that comprised the heart of the Baldwin Ranch were deeded to the State of California and the County of Los Angeles, to be developed into what is today the beautiful [http://www.arboretum.org/ Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden] .

Until a Supreme Court ruling in 1965, every property sale contract within the borders of Arcadia had to include a provision that the new owner could only sell the property to a white Protestant, though many non-Protestant families did, in fact, own homes and live in Arcadia long before that ruling.

In October 1975, the Santa Anita Fashion Park was opened to the public on the corner of Baldwin Avenue and Huntington Drive. The center court featured a gigantic blue head by Roy Lichtenstein, later removed. Now known as Westfield Santa Anita, the mall was expanded in 2004.

James Dobson, a previous Arcadia resident, founded the nonprofit Christian ministry Focus on the Family in the city in 1977. Its original office still stands on the south side of Foothill Blvd. Focus grew to larger quarters in the city, and in intervening years expanded to Monrovia for warehouse space before moving out of Arcadia completely in 1990.it is now based in Colorado Springs, Colorado;

In the late 1990s, Native American activists threatened to sue Arcadia High School over its use of the "Apache" mascot. The high school's use of Native American symbols, including an "Apache Joe" mascot, the "Pow Wow" school newspaper, the "Apache News" television program, the "Smoke Signals" news bulletin boards, the school's auxiliary team's marching "Apache Princesses" and opposing football team fans' "Scalp the Apaches" signs were viewed by these Native American activists and many Arcadia community members as being offensive. The school consulted with Native American groups and made some concessions but didn't change the mascot. Some residents of Arcadia, who are former students at the school and have Native American ancestry, do not take offense to the school's use of these symbols, including the White Mountain Apaches of Arizona. Arcadia High School has established good relations with these Apaches with their yearly charity drive to aid them.

Economy

In 2006, the median income for a household in the city was $69.241. Males had a median income of $70,594 versus $46,138 for females. The per capita income for the city was $28,400. About 2.7% of families and 2.9% of the population were below the poverty line, including 7.8% of those under age 18 and 6.1% of those age 65 or over.Fact|date=April 2007

Arcadia's economy is driven by wholesale trade, retail trade, manufacturing, health care and social assistance, arts, entertainment, and recreation. Revenue from the Santa Anita Racetrack has long supported capital improvements for the City of Arcadia, resulting in the City having very little bonded indebtedness.

The Westfield Santa Anita mall (formerly the Santa Anita Fashion Park) is a major shopping center in the city. In 2005, the Westfield Santa Anita completed its first phase of expansion featuring a new food court, Sport Chalet, Borders Books and Music, Dave & Busters, numerous smaller retailers, various full-service eateries in an area known as Restaurant Square, and a 16-screen AMC Theatres.

Currently, there is a proposal by Caruso Affiliated and Magna Entertainment to build a second large shopping mall adjacent to Westfield Santa Anita on the grounds of the Santa Anita Park racetrack. The controversial project, known as "The Shops at Santa Anita", has prompted heated debate among some residents in the community and enormous spending by corporate interests in favor and against the project. If the second mall is built, the combined size of the two malls will make Arcadia the largest retail shopping district in Los Angeles county.

In 2006, CNN and Money Magazine compiled a list of United States cities with the most expensive home prices. Arcadia ranked [http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/bplive/2006/top25s/priceyhomes.html/ #19] in the country with an average home price of $703,000.

Arcadia in popular culture

The famous U.S. Route 66, immortalized in song and literature, passes through Arcadia, on Huntington Drive in Downtown Arcadia, before turning off onto Colorado Place and then Colorado Street. After intersecting the 210 freeway, Route 66 runs parallel to and south of the freeway, cutting across the middle section of Arcadia.

The city is mentioned by Jack Kerouac in his novel "On the Road": Sal, the protagonist, is run out of town by a group of hostile teens when he stops for food at a local drive-in restaurant with a young Mexican woman. The vignette demonstrates the intolerance and racism prevalent in many places during 1950s America.

In a motel located in Arcadia across the street north-east from Santa Anita Racetrack, author Hunter S. Thompson wrote much of his novel, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" in the 1970s. In Michael Cunningham's novel "The Hours", Laura Brown mentions that she heard of a man who died in nearby Arcadia.
