Los Angeles County Aboretum

Last week we made another trip visiting Los Angeles area attractions - the Getty Center, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Los Angeles County Arboretum. The arboretum comprises 126 acres and has a rich history. We saw photos of many movies being filmed there with readily recognizable actors. Johnny Weissmuller as Tarzan with Brenda Joyce as Jane, Cary Grant and Claude Rains, and many more.  

In addition to the vast and spectacular display of plants from around the world there are several interesting historic structures on the property that make for excellent picture taking.

Designed by architect Albert A. Bennett, as was the Queen Anne Cottage, the Baldwin Coach Barn is an equally ornate example of Victorian extravagance.
