Central Methodist Live@Central will feature local history on Wednesday
Live@Central! continues on Wednesday, Jan. 24, with Steven Mott, Curator of the Florence County Museum.
Mott has an intense interest in the back stories of Florence. This evening, he will address the story of the internationally famous Florence family of luthiers.
