The History of Florence
Once inhabited by the Hohokam peoples and part of Mexico, the Gadsden Purchase brought Florence into the State of Arizona.
Founded by Civil War veteran Levi Ruggles in 1866 and named after the sister of Governor Richard McCormick, the town would later become the county seat for Pinal County.
"There's silver in them hills!", was certainly the word on the street back in 1875 which resulted in the creation of the Silver King Mine just 30 miles to the northeast of Florence. At the time, it was the richest silver mine in Arizona and operated for 25 years (1875-1900), spurring growth in the area.
When a canal was built in the 1880's, allowing water from the Gila River to be used for irrigation, farming and ranching became the focus of Florence.
Today, Florence is home to about 27,000 residents with many more flocking to the town to spend winters there. There are several annual festivals and events that take place in Florence, one notable one being the country's oldest children's rodeo where the junior cowboys are 5-18 years old.
