E.R. Squibb, that's where she learned about skin care. Smart cookie!! 
Remember the famous Red Door  On 5th AVE.?



I remember walking 
5th ave NY
and Passing it.
.Well, Elizabeth Arden's 

Famous Spa is in Maine
and it's for sale again. Below is when she owned it and the next
 is the way it looks now











The front driveway is blocked off,
but the row of stately pine trees evokes
the chauffeured cars of the rich and famous
 that once passed under those boughs.
In the tack room in the stables,
signs are still nailed to the wall bearing
the names of the horses
whose saddles hung in each spot.
Imagine a chance to buy this wonderful spot, with history dripping off
the Chinoiserie wallpaper. Depression Elegance a real piece of History.
Beauty treatments and Diet dinners and lot's of walking.
There is a View of Long Pond, it's in the Belgrades Lake area.
It property spans from Rome, Maine to Mt. Vernon, Maine.
Yes,  we also have a Paris Maine up the road a ways.
The Spa closed 1970, gee whiz, I could have gone.
I looked great then.
The Famous Beauty Queen Elizabeth Arden's Summer home
is for SALE for a mere $850,000. A 15 acre property 
 Arden’s Maine Chance Farms, an elite getaway spot for the rich
 and famous who would pay up to $1,000 a week.
Actress Ava Gardner, entertainer Judy Garland,
author Edna Ferber  and former first lady Mamie Eisenhower
were among the celebrities who stayed at the spa.
