AAA Editor Notes
Arcadia Area Historical Museum, 3340 Lake St., is in a restored 1884 Victorian house that was moved from just northeast of Arcadia to its present location in 1994 to save it from demolition. The two floors contain antiques and historical exhibits, and the lookout tower houses a photo gallery. Collections feature such items as antique furniture, hats, shoes, toys and quilts; Native American artifacts; and Petoskey stones. Exhibits depict other stories about Arcadia, including shipwrecks, railroads and native Arcadian and aviation pioneer Harriet Quimby.
A recently constructed carriage house also contains exhibits, including information about hunting and lumbering.
