It saddens us to share that something happened to our front sign. It doesn’t appear that this happened naturally, so please remember that Arcadia is a significant community and historical resource and acts like this make it ten times harder to preserve our beloved site. Arcadia closes at sundown and it is a punishable crime to vandalize State property.

Please help us protect and preserve our site by being good stewards! Visit historicpensacola.org/Arcadia to help us continue our preservation efforts!
