Adding Arcadia to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

We originally found mention of Arcadia in the GNIS. For more information, see the Referenced GNIS Codes section on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Arcadia elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

We also found Arcadia on a Rand McNally Map of Mississippi (1911).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Arcadia on our Genealogy Page.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Arcadia, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Mississippi's counties, including Issaquena, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Arcadia - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Arcadia) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Arcadia. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.6487, Longitude: -91.1257       In this case, the coordinates for Arcadia have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
