DescriptionOne of Arizona's oldest towns and the seat of Pinal County, Florence was founded by Levi Ruggles in 1866. Many historic homes and buildings perpetuate its frontier atmosphere.
Scenic desert highways from Florence include Kelvin Highway, a county road running east to Kelvin, and the Pinal Pioneer Parkway, a part of SR 79 leading southeast to Oracle Junction. Markers along the parkway identify desert wildlife.
