This fountain is located in beautiful Wilson Park. Surrounding the park are the Forks of Cypress replica (Regions Bank), the public library, Lauderdale County Court House, and many beautiful homes.
The fountain is surrounded by benches and shade trees making it the perfect reading spot after a trip to the library, or a place to rest after a bike ride around the city.
Florence is the birthplace of The Father of the Blues, W. C. Handy.
The court house is a beautiful stone building with a Spanish tile roof and columns topped with the "cypress capitals" similar to the columns on the colonnade of The Forks of Cypress.
