Current Exhibit: Eaton's Santa Anita Hotel and Restaurant
"Come for a day, or come to stay." On display now through the end of May: photos and memorabilia from Eaton's Santa Anita Hotel and Restaurant, formerly located at 1130-1150 W. Colorado Blvd. in Arcadia, from 1939-1969, on historic Route 66. The hotel had 58 rooms in a series of one-story bungalows surrounded by a landscaped court and swimming pool. Items on display include menus, ads, postcards, stationary, a key fob, and pictures of Charles Eaton, his wife, friends, and staff. Eaton's was demolished and in its place is now a Coco's Restaurant.
