Park Re-Opening: February 12th, 2011

McFarland Re-OpeningFlorence celebrated its 26th Annual Tour of Historic Florence on Saturday, February 12, 2011 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Eleven historic homes, commercial buildings, and public buildings dating from 1868 to 1930 were featured on the tour. Florence is noted for its collection of Territorial period architecture with over 120 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The heart of the downtown commercial district retains much of its original western character with old adobe homes, graceful Victorians, and early 20th century commercial structures. The tour not only focuses on the town's architecturally significant buildings, it also gives visitors a glimpse of Florence's colorful past. The stories that shape Florence's history run the gamut from old west gun fights to politicians and movie stars.

In addition to the tour, visitors and residents alike enjoyed the grand re-opening celebration of McFarland State Historic Park. Special guests Renee Bahl, Executive Director of Arizona State Parks; Jim Garrison, State Historic Preservation Officer; and Florence Mayor Vickie Kilvinger who all speak during the event. The park re-opened after being closed for more than two years thanks to a partnership among Arizona State Parks, the Town of Florence, and Florence Main Street Program. The park now houses the Florence Visitor Center in addition to the museum.
