Arcadia Resort, Lake Crescent, Clallam
This scene, photographed by the early 1950s, shows the entrance to the Arcadia Resort
on the north shore of Lake Crescent. The Arcadia Resort was started by Julius H. Petersen,
probably by about 1920 or slightly earlier. The Arcadia Resort was later operated by John A.
Foss by the early 1950's. The Arcadia Resort existed through at least the late 1950's and
consisted of at least about a dozen cabins.
This scene, photographed by Alfred G. Simmer, was probably photographed by the early
1930s. The building shown in this scene appears to be the main resort building, as a sign
that said Arcadia hung from the roof and faced the boat landing on Lake Crescent. This
building is shown with a veranda facing the lake, the posts and railings of which were
partially covered with ivy. The Arcadia Resort had a small store, which may possibly have
been located inside of this building. The following cabin scenes were all photographed by
about the early 1950's, by photographer J. Boyd Ellis, of Arlington, Washington.
