1. Ross/Fryer – Cushman Residence Marker
Inscription.  In 1876, Roderick Ross, one of Florence's first blacksmiths, constructed this Sonoran-style adobe house. The original flat earthen roof made of round log beams, saguaro ribs, and mud is well-preserved by a gable roof added between 1899 and 1910. Turned-wood posts support a timber-framed, hip-roof veranda. W.C. Smith was the second owner. Celebrated Union spy Pauline Cushman and her husband, Jere Fryer, later purchased the house. Tom Mix was a tenant here in the 1930s.
