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 both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections 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 Rhode Island (1911).

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

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Arcadia.
