The President's Plaque Award:

Arcadia Area Historical Museum—Arcadia, MI

Arcadia Area Historical Museum In its mission to preserve the unique history of the area, the Arcadia Area Historical Society also greatly restored the beauty of its community and returned this once-to-be demolished Victorian home to its original splendor. Through generous donors and committed volunteers, an old, decaying structure was removed from Arcadia's main street (Lake Street) and replaced with a historically significai 1884 Victorian home which had been moved nearly two miles to the new site. Witi the arrival of this new town center home which was then beautifully restored as th museum, came a revival of community pride and an explosion of interest in preserving and restoring old home and buildings in this once thriving community.
