Florence TX 76527
Florence, Texas is located in fast growing Williamson County, north of Austin, Texas on Highway 195, the highway to Fort Hood and Killeen and east of Highway 183. The new 1-30 Toll Road begins at Highway 195 just east of Florence. There are several really nice historic homes in Florence and the small downtown has some neat old buildings. I have stood by the big old wood stove in the old Hardware Store on a cold day!
Florence has many phone numbers with the 254 area code instead of Austin, Texas's 512. Florence ISD schools, home of the Florence Buffalos, are really great for a small town and feature college classes in high school and a meat processing or "butcher shop" class and full-service meat market in Florence offering USDA choice or better meats- beef, pork and lamb. Call the Florence Meat Market at (254) 793-3955
