Allow about two hours for the Florence, Colorado Self-Guided Heritage Tour. This is one of a series of free Self-Guided Heritage Tours developed by the Fremont County Heritage Commission and Fremont County Tourism Council, with the support of a grant from the Colorado Tourism Office, to encourage heritage tourism in our area. The Fremont County Historical Society, a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization, is a partner in this effort.
