from the Preface:
Many events have occurred in Florence that have rendered it a village of especial interest and have given it distinction, and this work is offered to the public in the hope that not only its present citizens, but those who will make Florence their home, in years to come, may find it both interesting and valuable.
Three years ago, upon the suggestion of a friend, a book illustrating the picturesque attractions of the village was conceived, and a beginning made. As no one could be found to contribute an adequate historical sketch, the writer has reluctantly assumed the task.
