An all-encompassing sense of pride
seems to polish the streets and give character to the faces of people walking in the downtown area of the small, but flourishing city of Arcadia. Maybe this is to be expected from a rural area of Western Wisconsin that is known for its outstanding work ethic. Located just 40 minutes north of La Crosse and 25 minutes from the Mississippi River, Arcadia has become a hot bed for people seeking quality of life and great career opportunities.
Within Arcadia's city limits is a spectrum of opportunities for employment and recreation.The Ashley Companies (Ashley Furniture Industries) is Arcadia’s largest employer. It produces a broad line of quality furniture under the Ashley and Millennium labels that are marketed worldwide. It has been a significant contributor to the city of Arcadia and has helped make it one of the most beautiful cities in the state.
The people of Arcadia are proud to say they have contributed in some way to the many things this city has to offer. It is evident that the community of Arcadia is prepared for a substantial increase in population; with its new facilities, available services and wide spread recreational resources. These are qualities that appeal not only to families of the Midwest, but anyone in search of a place that still claims 'pride' as an asset worth living for.
