I was reading the free paper in Florence, Territorial News this morning and found a few things to add.
The Florence Hotel was originally called The Silver King Hotel, it did not give a date as to when it was build or when the change came.
The Pinal County Court House was built in 1891 they ran out of money so the clock was never completed. A false face was painted on, reading a perpetual 11:44.
If I would have read this before posting yesterday I could have added this in.
The big draw to Florence was the Silver King Mine, when the mine played out Florence became more agricultural. Water of course was a problem thus the Coolidge Dam was built to divert water from the Gila River to the Pima Indians and the farmers who mostly grew cotton.
Other than doing reading today and cooking up some veggies, and making an apt. to take the truck to the RV guy on Friday morning, I didn't do to much else.
Good Night All
