The Visitor’s Center is located at the top of the first gravel driveway, overlooking the site grounds. This facility is wheelchair accessible with an access ramp adjacent to the paved designated parking.

Museum Exhibit:

The 1,000 square-foot museum exhibit highlights Arcadia’s unique story by exploring the historical and archaeological aspects of the site through interpretive panels and artifacts on display. The museum includes a children's area, "Meet Me at the Mill" featuring an educational exhibit on archaeology, milling, and nature with hands-on displays.

Museum Store:

The exhibit space includes a museum store that is a wonderful source of books and gifts relating to local history and culture.


The classroom is used as an educational station for scheduled tours, lecture and program facility, and as a meeting room available for local non-profit organizations and groups. If you are interested in using the classroom as a meeting space, please contact the Education Staff at 850-626-3084 or
