There is a lot of activity happening in Downtown Florence today. Main Street is open for business, and locally-owned shops and restaurants are springing up next to established destinations. Most of these businesses occupy buildings dating back to the Territorial Period of our state’s history and are included in the oldest townsite historic district in Arizona.
Main Street is quaint, pedestrian-friendly, and considered the gathering place for events and social gatherings, whether it is along Main Street or at the new Padilla Park next to the Silver King Marketplace. With an eye toward the future, the Town of Florence recently constructed a new library and aquatic center at the north end of downtown that opens the door for additional development in the Territory Square master-planned area.
