Florence: A Renaissance Spirit

General - South Carolina History

This program focuses on the history of Florence, S.C., which originally began as a railroad junction. During the Civil War, a Confederate stockade was located there, and a gunboat built in Florence patrolled the Great Pee Dee River. Today, Florence is an important regional hub, with leading medical facilities, educational institutions, and growing industry.
