Preservation Florence is a year-long series concerning historic preservation in the city of Florence that has covered topics such as the National Register of Historic Places, physical restoration, African American and Native American preservation, and cemetery preservation. For the remainder of the year, the series will focus on Florence’s own historic districts. There will be a different presentation each month where the history and architecture of Florence’s unique historic districts will be explored. In September, we will host a walking tour of Florence’s smallest historic district: Wilson Park Houses as well as Wilson Park. Florence City Historian Billy Ray Warren will lead the tour, which starts at 10am at the Florence-Lauderdale Public Library, 350 N. Wood Avenue. This is a free event.
This event is the ninth in a year-long series of presentations and workshops based around our city’s wealth of historic buildings, neighborhoods, and landscapes. The series is sponsored by the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area, the Florence Arts and Museums, and the Florence Historical Board. Call 256-760-6427 for more information.
