About This Adventure

Florence is a ghost town with markers from when it used to be a booming mining town in the early 1860's. At one point even being Idaho County's first seat. Complete abandonment occurred sometime after 1951. You can visit the famous Florence cemetery where many of the more unsavory and interesting residents of the old town were buried, as well as walk the site where the town originally stood.

Interpretive panels at the site explain the history of the area and display a map of the surrounding area. There is a parking area and footbridge leading to the historic cemetery.
