365 Things to do in Costa Mesa – Arden Helena Modjeska Historic House and Gardens – Day 304

The_Arden_Helena_Modjeska_HouseTucked away amidst a live oak grove on the banks of Santiago Creek in Modjeska Canyon lies the century-old home of world renowned actress Madame Helena Modjeska. Named for the grounds’ resemblance to the Forest of Arden in the Shakespearean play, “As You Like It,” Arden is designated a National Historic Landmark.

Docent led tours of the historic house and gardens are currently offered Wednesdays and Saturdays, by advance reservation only. This walking tour will take you through the years Madame Modjeska resided in her canyon home, and along the rock lined pathways of what she so fondly called the Forest of Arden. Tours are approximately 1 1/2 hours.
