Photograph of three people standing in front of Madame Helene Modjeska's home, "Forest of Arden", Santiago Canyon, Orange County, 1898. The woman and two men are leaning against a low wall or hedge at the end of a paved walkway. The well-groomed lawn and few trees and other plants surround them. The moderately large, wooden, peaked house is visible behind them. Madam Modjeska first came to California with a party of Polish political refugees who founded a cooperative land colony near Anaheim in the middle of the 1870's. She lived at Arden Cottage after she retired from the stage.
