Most of the people in Fremont County aren't living here by choice. Nine of Colorado's 13 state prisons are located in the county and Florence is home to one of the country's Supermax facilities, a U.S. penitentiary with the highest level of security. The area was populated by the Utes, the Sioux and the Arapahoe before European setders began heading westward along the Arkansas River. Florence became home for many who decided to setde alongside the river rather than face a traverse across the Royal Gorge and the Rocky Mountains beyond. Florence was named after the daughter of an early setder, James McCandless. The Arkansas provides good trout fishing and great white water rafting for visitors and those residents who aren't stuck indoors.
