Helena Modjeska's Retreat at Arden

Vintage Orange.     Wednesday, January 25 2017

Madame Helena Modjeska was the reigning queen of the theater and one of her generation's finest actors. She created a forest retreat in Santiago Canyon and named it Arden, after a setting in Shakespeare's "As You Like It." She lived there with her family between 1880 and 1906.

Today, her beloved home, Arden, is a National Landmark, available for public tours my appointment.

Dorota Plazewski is a volunteer docent at Arden. She shares Madame Modjeska's story as well as her experiences as a guide at the park.
