Development in the Arcadia area began around 1919. The land companies began dividing the area into lots of five-to-ten acres, to be sold off as small citrus orchards. They mandated that homes built on the lots could cost no less than $5,000. Later, in 1925, this number was increased to $10,000. Their goal was to attract affluent members of society who were looking for a more rural lifestyle. The hope was the would move to the area and enjoy maintaining a citrus orchard of their own.
