General Note

  • Dorr Field, named after pilot Stephen Dorr Jr., was located 11 miles east of Arcadia. It was established during WWI to support flight training operations at nearby Carlstrom Field and subsequently closed at the end of the war. Dorr Field was reopened in 1942 by John Riddle and operated as a civilian contract school for training Army aviators. It was one square mile and had no runways. After WWII, both Carlstrom and Dorr Fields were sold to the State of Florida for a dollar. The site of Dorr Field was later reused as the site of the minimum security DeSoto County Correctional Institution.
