3.18 WomenSMHeritageAs part of Women’s History Month the Santa Monica History Museum presents A Tribute to Dynamic Women of the Past, a look at the significant women in Santa Monica’s history. Arcadia Bandini is a key figure who in 1871 became one of the wealthiest women in California after the death of her first husband. Bandini married her second husband, Colonel Robert S. Baker, who co-founded Santa Monica, and Arcadia became one of Santa Monica’s most influential citizens. In 1897, Arcadia and Santa Monica co-founder, Senator John P. Jones became the primary stockholders of a property holding corporation, the Santa Monica Land and Water company.

These stockholders generously donated land for churches, public schools, Lincoln Park (Reed Park), the Woman’s Club building, forestry station, Palisades Park, the grassy strip on San Vicente boulevard. They also donated land where the Veterans’ Administration is located today. Arcadia is the first woman in Santa Monica’s history to be officially recognized with a monument in Palisades Park.
