Pope's Tavern Museum
At one time a stagecoach stop, tavern, and an inn, Pope's Tavern is one of the the oldest structures in Florence. Located on the military road that connected Nashville to the Natchez Trace and on to New Orleans, the tavern was an ideal stop-over for weary travelers in the 1800s. Legend has it that Andrew Jackson stopped here on his march to the Battle of New Orleans.
