Call for Volunteers at Arcadia Homestead


Arcadia Homestead in Milton, Fla., has resumed its volunteer program and are still seeking interested individuals!
Now more than ever, dedicated volunteers are needed to help tell the story of the Great Depression and Northwest Florida’s history. On site is the Simpson House,
a 1,430-square-foot historic house museum highlighting life at Arcadia Farms during the Great Depression. The multi-sensory exhibit features a mixture of staged, historic furniture and interactive exhibits.

Elevated Boardwalk

The three-fourths mile long, elevated boardwalk navigates visitors around the archaeological remains of the mill facilities and includes interpretive signage highlighting the history, archaeology, and environment at Arcadia Mill. The boardwalk and bridge are wheelchair accessible.

Walking Paths

Explore the antebellum past using the walking paths with interpretive signage to learn about the structures that once stood at the Homestead and the people who lived there over time. Sit on one of several benches and enjoy the shade from heritage live oaks.

Victory Garden

Sow the seeds of Victory! Check out the vegetable and flower garden behind the Simpson House.



A shaded picnic area with four picnic tables and trashcans is available for use.
Any availability is appreciated.
Kudos to an Eagle Scout
Local Eagle Scout, Carlo Ghiglino, constructed and installed four new benches along Arcadia’s nature trails!
The project took 141 hours to complete with the help of his fellow scouts in Troop 400.
Visitors are encouraged to enjoy the cooler temperatures, grab some exercise – and take a rest along these historic trails.
