Arcadia Bay is a fictional small town located in Oregon. The home of Max Caulfield, Arcadia Bay is at the center of an supernatural phenomena when Max gains the ability to manipulate time and, presumably, foresee the future before it happens.
The history of Arcadia Bay's beginnings is relatively obscured. The oldest family that lived in the town is the Prescott Family, who've worked to build or were involved in major aspects of Arcadia's Bay economy and education. Speaking with the fisherman at Two Whales Diner, he confirms that one of Arcadia Bay's primary exports is fishing.
However, when the Prescott family gained more influence over the town, they used their finances to limit fishing by gaining rights to the harbor. Their contributions to the town are such that there is legitimate consideration to change the name from "Arcadia Bay" to "Prescott Bay".
