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 used to own 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 performances throughout the year.  A younger group, called the Florenteenies, have put on their own play at different times in the past (most are grown up now).   

Florence Historical Foundation have also had an annual Tree Lighting in Mormon Park (generally the 1st Saturday in December). The event starts with an open house at the Bank of Florence from 3 P.M. to 5 P.M.

These events help support the Florence Historical Foundation.
