Florence Historical Foundation

Florence's historic preservation is due in large part to an organization called the Florence Historical Foundation.  They own and operate the Bank of Florence, the Florence Depot, the Florence Fire Station, and the Keirle Home.  These places have been restored and are now important parts of the Florence landscape.

In 2004, the Florence Historical Foundation built a new community center called the Florence City Hall.

A subgroup of the Florence Historical Foundation forms the Florentine Players.  They put on a melodrama for Florence Days each year, and put on other plays throughout the year.  A younger group is called the Florenteenies.  They put on a play each year as well.  The Florentine Players also put on a Garage Sale and Sock Hop each year.  These events help support the Florence Historical Foundation.
