PDLT along with supporters and local leaders celebrated the ribbon cutting and building dedication of our new office in downtown Florence at 448 West Cheves Street on Tuesday, June 7, 2022. Dating to the 1950's, the brick craftsman style home was transitioned in the late 1980's to commercial office use. PDLT invested in renovations that honor and celebrate the ongoing revitalization in this area of Florence, including repurposing a portion of the property into an urban garden showcasing native plants and trees.
The building is dedicated to Dr. Genie Lee, a longtime supporter of PDLT. Her generous estate gift made it possible for us to purchase the building and to permanently memorialize Dr. Lee's love for the Pee Dee Watershed.
