Florence Rail Trail – Florence, South Carolina

The Florence Rail Trail is a planned greenspace throughout the city of Florence that links together nature, culture, and historic sites. This greenway is part of Florence City Council’s vision of connecting its citizens to nature, to their city, and to each other. It is also a great way to get around town without a car!

SCIWAY contributor RB Davis tells us that “Florence’s railroads were busy during the Civil War transporting troops, artillery, and supplies as they made their way through Florence and onto Richmond, Charleston, and Savannah. The railroad carried wounded Confederate soldiers to Florence’s Wayside Hospital, and brought captured Union soldiers to the infamous Florence Stockade, which has been incorporated into the Rail Trail System and is under reconstruction as a historical location.”

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Florence Rail Trail, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips.
