Florence is truly a “great little town” with many opportunities to become involved in the community and with the people. If you are looking for a way to get involved, look under the Community Opportunities tab above.
In the 1960s, Charles and Velma Price had a dream to preserve the history of Florence. With the aid of Darrell Lindsey, the community came together to purchase the old Eagles Lodge building on S. Pikes Peak and Front Street. In the summer of 1964, volunteers cleaned and painted, collected and organized, catalogued and displayed the exhibits you can still see today!
The Bell Tower Cultural Center, operated by the Florence Arts Council, hosts a wide variety of activities for the community of Florence and Fremont County. Classes for both adults and children are offered every month including: art, music, health, dance, and yoga.
The space may also be rented out for destination weddings and other events. Staffed by volunteers and supported by the members, this facility has a beautiful sculpture garden in the front courtyard. This incredible building is just a short walk from Main St and easy to locate.
