The Arcade Mall is a stunning historic restoration of one of the nation’s first enclosed shopping malls. The breath-taking atrium has a dramatic Victorian stepped-glass roof. The property was built in 1840 and underwent several interior and exterior renovations during the 1920s, 1950s, and 1980s. It holds historic significance locally and nationally as one of the few remaining arcades from its time period.
The renovated downtown landmark has been reactivated by artists. Its charm and scale make it a perfect location for social gatherings and events.
