The archaeological data set results from two investigations from which the author was able to identify four domestic areas on the landscape. The domestic areas are each examined for functional similarities and differences. The author describes the assemblage of each area and then compares the assemblages to explore similarities and differences in material culture, status, and community organization. The examination of domestic material at Arcadia Mill reveals that different segments of the population inhabited the uplands north and south of the industrial complex. This study provides a foundation for future investigations at Arcadia Mill and contributes to the larger framework of antebellum industrial research.
