1. Jesus Martinez House Marker
Inscription. Jesus Martinez, a farmer from New Mexico, began construction on this adobe house in 1872. Completed in 1880, the U-shaped building had a traditional Sonoran flat dirt roof and central patio enclosed on three sides. By 1890 the house was divided for use as a meat market, store and residence. About 1912, the hipped roof was added and the home was reconverted to a single residence. It is the best preserved and least altered Sonoran style structure in Florence. Listed, National Register of Historic Places.
 
Erected 1980 by Town of Florence and Arizona Historic Society.
