The Arcadia Mill field school is open to public visitation!

Visitors to the Arcadia Mill Archaeological Site are welcome to visit the ongoing field school at its new location just up the road from the Arcadia Mill Visitor Center.  We will be working on site and providing tours Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm (weather permitting). Please stop by the Visitors Center for directions to the site. 

Also, this Friday, June 8th opportunities will be available for visitors to work with artifacts in Arcadia Mill’s Visitor Center and join the archaeologists outside.  Indoors, volunteers will be rough-sorting artifacts recovered from this year’s excavation.  Tours will be offered at the site and volunteers will be able to help the archaeologists screen for artifacts.

All ages are welcome, but an accompanying adult is required for children under 18.  Anyone who wishes to work outside must bring pants and close-toed shoes; a hat, sunscreen and bug spray are strongly recommended.  Water will be provided on-site, but a water bottle is suggested.  Visitors should bring their own lunch if they plan to stay through noon.

For more information contact Arcadia Mill by phone at (850) 626-3084 or email
