The moving of the old Florence railroad depot was delayed when the path was blocked by low hanging Western Union lines. The wires could not be adjusted until the Western Union strike ended.
The depot was condemned in 1968, but the Pioneer Association said they wanted to renovate it and turn it into a tourist info site. It now sits at 2999 Dick Collins Road and is a museum.
