Arcadia Mill Part 1

I have a lot of photos to share with you from before, during and after our move. Here's the plan. I am going to post some blogs from after our move (current photos) and then as time allows I will go back to the before and during. Don't worry, I will let you know what time frame we are on in each post.

This post is part one of two about Arcadia Mill (http://www.historicpensacola.org/arcadia.cfm) in Milton, FL. Milton will hopefully be our new hometown. We are still waiting to hear back on the house. So for now we are camping out at a few different parks and having fun discovering little gems like this place.

I am not going into a lot of information because I took pictures of the signs at the front. You can click on the photos for a larger view and easier reading. Enjoy!

Old Railway Car

Various Mill Implements and Waterwheel

Bricks from the old Textile Mill

Most of the Arcadia Mill complex is an archaeological site. They are still digging up the remains of the various mills and buildings. Some of which is not visible to the public at this time. Unless you want to throw on waders and volunteer with the college students. To get back to where the textile mill was, you take a scenic nature hike. Those photos will be in tomorrow's blog.

I've never heard of the area but it looks fascinating. Good luck settling in and post more photos soon.
