Welcome to Florence Colorado

Florence, Colorado is a town of character and grit that began with the migration of Spanish – French trappers, explorers and pioneers who joined the Native Americans, mainly Utes who were inhabiting this area. Soon, the town bustled with the activities that made the west legendary. Stagecoaches, wagon lines, and 3 railroads served this high mountain desert agricultural region picking up supplies, serving our neighboring coal towns. In 1898 the 2nd oil well in the USA was discovered here and it is still pumping today. It is a town that had to rediscover itself when times got hard.

Today, as you walk the streets of Florence’s Historic District,  you will be surrounded with a International selection of restaurants, variety of retail businesses for your browsing, shopping, and dining pleasures.
