In early October 2017, the Museum was washed, scraped, and prepped for painting, the first paint job since the Museum opened in 2000. The carriage house was also washed to remove mold amd spruce it up too. Previously, to prepare for fall and the paint job, the ramp and deck were resurfaced; bushes near the building were removed or drastically trimmed to get them out of the way; and other plants were manicured as needed. Society volunteers have been busy taking care of the buildings and grounds.
2021 Cracker Barrel: Growing Up in Arcadia in the 1950s
A panel of seasoned subject matter experts will talk about what life was like for Arcadia kids in the 1950s. The audience will be urged to ask questions and tell related stories of their own, if they have any. Did you know Arcadia High School had a two-story metal tube fire escape? It made a great slide.
Do you have a group that would like to tour the museum? Contact us to set up a date and time for 2022.
