Arcadian Hills was recorded in September 1934 by Herman and Anna Marks as the seventh platted subdivision in New Berlin. Herman Marks was born in New Berlin in 1884. He worked as a carpenter, a farmer, and laid cable before developing land here. By 1941, additional land was added to the original plat, enlarging the area of Arcadian Hills to include a total of forty-four lots of approximately one acre in size, on 51 acres. It is comprised of sixteen single family homes with dates of construction from 1937 to 1953. The homes reflect a variety of Mid-Century styles including Ranch, Cape Cod and Minimal Traditional designs. Exteriors of stone, brick, clapboard and stucco retain a good degree of historic integrity. Many of the homes have attached garages with breezeways. Deed restrictions including minimum costs of homes, types of animals permitted, number of homes per lot, and others were implemented in 1936 and remained in place until 1957. Unique features of this historic district were lots of one-acre size that were significantly larger than earlier subdivisions in New Berlin; along with the fact that it was planned, developed and designed with curvilinear roadways instead of standard grid roadways. It has the distinction of being the first planned curvilinear subdivision in New Berlin. The historical uniqueness of this subdivision as well as the retention of the original historic integrity of the homes contained within it make it worthy of recognition by the City of New Berlin Landmarks Commission.
