Florence, SC was originally formed as a railroad depot at the junction of three railway lines: the Wilmington & Manchester, the North Eastern and the Cheraw & Darlington. Five acres of land was purchased in 1853 by the Wilmington & Manchester line whose president, W.W. Harlee, had a daughter named Florence. Chartered in 1871 and soon followed by the creation of Florence County in 1888, on December 24, 1890 the City of Florence was born.


From that original 5 acres of land, Florence quickly became a central hub between Richmond, Charleston and Savannah. By the time Florence was chartered, the village was home to about 700 residents and, helped by its location, quickly grew as a center for travelers, industry and medical facilities.


The building we now occupy, Hope Health Medical Plaza, is constructed on the site of one of the original railroad depots in Florence and we are proud to carry on a tradition of advancing our city and the services it has to offer.

 

Upcoming Events

it all starts with a seed

Whether the seed is from a plant or an idea, it needs to be nurtured so it will grow.  We started with the idea that local agriculture, savory menu items, nutritious meals and low prices could come together in one sublime moment. Leave the world behind and stimulate your senses at Tracks Cafe
