Cities: Florence

Located on the central Oregon coast along U.S. Highway 101, Florence provides convenient access to countless outdoor recreational and activities. The town and its stunning surroundings are also accessible via Oregon Highway 126 from Eugene. This route runs through the Willamette Valley and then along the Siuslaw River, which flows through coastal mountains to Florence and the Pacific Ocean.

Fred Jensen, curator of the Siuslaw Pioneer Museum, more than just oversees the collection of artifacts and photographs in his downtown Florence museum, he shares the stories of the area.
