W.C. Handy Home, Museum and Library

Blues composer W.C. Handy, the Father of the Blues, was born in Florence and never forgot his small-town river roots. The museum — the original cabin Handy was born in — houses many of Handy's personal items, including original sheet music, his trumpet, and the piano he used to compose "St. Louis Blues."
