Florahome is at once unique and typical of history of our nation. It is the result of dreamers and doers striving for something better. While geography played a part in its creation, it was the work of people who made it, and make it, what it is. Florahome's story reveals the interplay of forces that shape history everywhere. Through images and discussion, this presentation provides insight into a 19th century planned community that is still with us today, responding to changes wrought by time and shaped by human hands.
