University of North Alabama

  Founded in 1818, Florence is located on the Tennessee River in the rolling hills of northern Alabama.  Wilson Dam, one of many hydroelectric dams on the river, is adjacent to the city.  Along with three other cities, the area is collectively known as “The Shoals.” The striking red clay soil has played a significant role in the area’s economy of cotton and soybean production, coal, iron, bauxite, and asphalt.
