Milton in Santa Rosa County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Arcadia Mill Archaeological Site
An extensive millrace provided power by transporting water from Pond Creek to the mill complex. The millrace channeled water from the Arcadia mill pond to the water wheel at the second sawmill and textile mill. The water then turned the wheel, fell into the plunge pool and flowed back into Pond Creek.
