Florence, Nebraska and the Missouri River Valley were a major stop on the Mormon and western trails. This center does a very good job of telling the Mormon Trail history of the migration to Salt Lake. There is an informative film, an art gallery and many original pioneer artifacts that cannot be found elsewhere. The staff was friendly and helpful. While there, take a stroll across the street at the winter quarters cemetery and the LDS temple. Also, if you drive across Mormon Bridge (an old ferry site across the Missouri River), you can visit the Kanesville Tabernacle in Council Bluffs. Kanesville played perhaps an even greater role in the westward migration.
