Dred Scott Historic District
African American History; Florence, AL; Lauderdale County, AL
The Dred Scott Historic District was proposed as a national historic district. The historic district consisted of one square block between Court St., Tennessee Street, Seminary Street, and College Street. It was nominated on the basis of historical, commercial, and architectural significance. The nomination, however, was not approved and the proposed district is now contained within the Downtown Historic District.
