Dig Deep to Help Arcadia

Historic Arcadia seeks to promote life-long learning, community engagement, critical thinking and historical and cultural understanding within a broad context.

We need your help to continue this mission of sharing our community’s story. In recent years, Arcadia’s legislative funding was vetoed so now our success depends on the
support of private donors. Set among the pine forests of Santa Rosa County, Arcadia provides a unique experience for the community through interactive, indoor and outdoor exhibits, year-round public programming and educational field trips for grades K-12. Please consider making a gift to protect Arcadia and the preserved history of our local community

To inquire about exclusive naming opportunities or other ways to support Arcadia, email arcadiamill@uwf.edu or contact Robin Zimmern at 850-595-5985 x123. 

Dig Deep For Arcadia!



We would like to give a special recognition to our generous donors who stepped up to support Arcadia when our Dig Deep for Arcadia initiative began.
