Mesquite: Florence Ranch Homestead

Florence Ranch Homestead

The homestead, on Barnes Bridge Road just east of Galloway, is a step back in time to the late 1800s. Donated to the City of Mesquite by the Florence family, the homestead is restored and furnished with items historically important to the community. One of the buildings serves as a gift shop.
