The History of Arcadia
Arcadia is said to have been named by Rev. James Madison Hendry to show his appreciation for a cake baked for him by the young daughter (Arcadia Albritton) of pioneer settlers.
During it's early years, Arcadia remained a small town centered around cattle and farming until the late 19th century when it experienced exponential growth after the Florida Southern Railway was built through the town.
Arcadia was all but destroyed by a fire that started in a horse stable in the middle of town on Thanksgiving Day 1905. The Thanksgiving Day fire resulted in a substantial loss of many of the town's buildings and resulted in a years-long re-building process. Arcadia cemented it's importance to the area when it became the County Seat for DeSoto County in 1921, by Legislative Act.
Today, Arcadia is home to almost 8,000 people. It's historic district is on the National Register of Historic places and it celebrates its agricultural roots with several an annual rodeo events that attract "real" cowboys from all over the area. The local Arcadia air-field was used to train both WWI and WWII pilots and this part of the towns aviation history is remembered annually through the celebration of Aviation Day.
