Small town with so much history and most preserved in this fine museum. The old building itself is historic and well worth the trip.

This museum has a ton of archives and information. My favorite displays are upstairs where multiple artifacts are staged as rooms. The staff was friendly. It is not open year round so check for hours outside of the summer months.

Just a lot of good history about the coal and oil industry, in a wonderful old building that was once part of a way bigger busier town than Florence is now. Nice relaxed place.
