Florence: A Ghost Town

I'm not sure if it was because we were in Florence on a Sunday at four in the afternoon, or this crappy economy, but this town was virtually empty and looked like a ghost town.  We saw two cars and two humans on the sidewalk pass us by on this lonely downtown street.  Many of the buildings were empty but there was only one that Sharon pick up some sort of reading.  We drove around and took videos and photos of the many abandoned and old buildings.  It was very quiet and eerie standing in the middle of a street and not seeing a soul anywhere.  After cruising around we headed off to Adamsville (next post).
