NEW FLORENCE – New Town to Be Located Near the Old Camp

GRANGEVILLE 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.
