Founded as a railroad hub, Florence’s original city limits formed a circle with a 1 mile radius, epitomizing ‘humble beginnings.’ Now boasting 21.5 square miles within city limits, the physical footprint isn't the only thing that’s grown.
The Come Up
After experiencing tremendous positive change in recent years, the city of Florence has positioned itself as a beacon of progress and prosperity. Downtown Florence has become a destination for dining, entertainment, and shopping, and has become a hub for over 30 annual events and festivals.
Home Sweet Home
Even with its growth, the city hasn't forgotten its small-town roots, and its history runs deep. Residents take heart in a strong sense of community, are proud to call Florence “home.”
