After A Trip To The Florence County Museum In South Carolina, Get Outside And Explore Timrod Park
By Carolyn Harmon|Published July 19, 2022
Under Brown Mountain Lights the Beast of Blandenboro wanders this magical land where lighthouses shine on kingdoms only accessible by ferries. A Lost Colony of legends and pirates revealed in historical sites and majestic mountains with views that make us weep. The home of handmade sculptures and scrumptious cuisine. North Carolina leaves this long-time writer and artist breathless with endless surprises, including the unlikely warmth a winter walk on the beach can bring.
The City of Florence was chartered in 1871 and founded as a railroad hub, becoming the junction of three major railroad systems including the Northeastern, the Wilmington and Manchester, and the Cheraw and Darlington. It was incorporated in 1890 and remains one of the major cities in South Carolina. While the city offers a wide variety of attractions, be sure to visit the Florence County Museum and Timrod Park for a fun time with relatively no cost. Admission to the museum and park is free, however, you might want to purchase some of the museum’s cool merchandise or a membership to offer support. Enjoy a great day in Florence, South Carolina, at both of these worthwhile attractions.
Are you ready for a fun-filled family trip to Florence? After you go to this museum and park in South Carolina and if you find yourself feeling hungry, take a drive to Julia Belle’s Restaurant, now in a new location at 2106-50 W. Lucas St. in Florence. This country charmer offers Lowcountry goodness through the staff’s down-home cooking.
