DAILY STATESMAN BOISE, IDAHO
FLORENCE New Town to Be Located Near the Old Camp
FREE PRESS: The miners of
Florence district in mass meeting assembled last Sunday decided
unanimously upon the location of a new town to be situated a quarter of
a mile south of the old town of Florence on Summit Flat.
The new town is to be called New Florence.
A more sightly location for a town could not be selected in the
camp. It is situated on a
large, flat, high and dry gravel belt, surrounded on all sides by groves
of small black pine and having good drainage.
It is a central location and is convenient of access to all parts
of the camp, besides being situated directly on the state wagon road.
