Florence Rail Trail – Florence, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Florence County Photos | Florence Rail Trail
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!
Some areas that the trail goes by are Jefferies Creek Park and Freedom Florence Recreational Park. To learn more about the Florence Rail Trail and other areas it connects, please see this PDF brochure.
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.”
