Florence

Thursday, November 5, 2009

A couple weeks ago my mom and I went to Florence, AL. Florence is home to the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in Alabama. The house was built for the Rosenbaum family in 1939.






We also went to Pope Tavern, which was once a stagecoach stop, tavern and inn, and Civil War hospital.



Our last stop in Florence was the ruins of the Forks of Cypress. The Greek Revival plantation was built in 1820. When Union troops invaded the area, the plantation was used as a camp base. In 1966 the plantation was struck by lightning, and the only thing that remains are the columns.
