Inscription.  
Arcadia Mill industrial complex included a multi-ethnic village located in the uplands and industrial facilities situated in the lowlands. This ethnically diverse industrial community included an enslaved African-American labor force, Anglo-American workers, and an elite Anglo-American management class.

Ezekiel Simpson’s home, located in the southern uplands or modern neighborhood, served as the elite component of the Arcadia community. Archaeological excavations have yielded domestic material from the uplands surrounding the industrial complex including lower status deposits and refuse from the Simpson lot.
 
Erected by University of West Florida Historic Trust.
