Arcadia, Florida- USA.
This quaint town in Central Florida is an antique lovers dream. Not only do they have several antique shops on the main street, once a month vendors from all over converge on the town with even more antiques.
Incorporated in 1887, it is the county seat of DeSota County, Florida.
During Thanksgiving Day in 1905 the town was destroyed by a large-scale fire that originated from a mid-town livery stable. Furthermore the fire was exacerbated because the town did not have a working water system or fire department. The estimated monetary damage was $250,000 but there was no loss of life. Much of the business district was not spared. It would be years before the town recovered.
The Opera House was built in 1906, after the fire, and is rumored to be haunted. The ground level of the building was a bank- Florida Loan and Trust Company.
The entire downtown area of Aradia is on the National Registry of Historic Places, including the Opera House.
