Arcadia Mill Archaeological Site is a local gem. It is a beautiful site which holds pieces of history you cannot explore anywhere else in Santa Rosa County. The site is not only home to a museum, but also a nature walk that allows visitors to walk through the areas where men once lived and worked at a local saw mill. Just down the road is an expansion of the original Site: the Arcadia Homestead. The Homestead is where the family who owned the saw mill lived. The Homestead was donated by decedents of the family and it was renovated into a house museum. 
Arcadia was once able to offer group tours, educational events, and even school tours for all grade levels. However, in 2019, a bill was vetoed that resulted in a cut of funding to Arcadia Mill Archaeological Site and the Site had to reduce their hours to only 2 days a week, no group tours, and not many events. 
Arcadia Mill is a rarity. A site of local history that isn’t told anywhere else in the county. A beautiful piece of nature, preserved to show a small window of history. This Site has offered many opportunities for education, family, and fun and will be able to again if funding is restored.
If State funding is not restored, it is uncertain what may happen to the site.
