Notable attractions include the Father of the Blues, W.C. Handy, was born in a small log cabin in Florence. A museum in his honor contains an expansive collection of his personal papers and artifacts. Visitors can also see his famous trumpet and the piano on which he composed the famous “St. Louis Blues.”

Other famous attractions include the only structure in Alabama built by noted twentieth-century architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The house, built in Florence in 1939, has been meticulously restored and is open as a house museum.
