A series of historical lectures, with a local flavor, will begin next month as the Town of Florence continues to celebrate its 150th anniversary. The Parks and Recreation Department has partnered with AZ Humanities to present the lecture series.

All the lectures are free, begin at 6:00 p.m. and are held at the Florence Library and Community Center, 778 N. Main Street.

The first lecture is on Thursday, March 10th titled Tom Mix: King of the Cowboys and is presented by well-known local historian, Christine Reid. Betsy Fahlman will discuss Art of the Internment Camps: Culture Behind Barbed Wire on Thursday, March 24th.

Two lectures are held in April. Women of the Arizona State Prison will be featured on April 14th presented again by Christine Reid. That lecture will be followed on April 28th by How the Supreme Court Judge’s Brother Got Away with Murder, presented by Paul Heitter.

These lectures are a great opportunity to learn more about the community.
