Step back in history to see how the founders of the town lived and an excellent tour by well informed docents. Can't wait to take my Grandchildren to the Victorian Christmas.

This is a lovely historic home near downtown Tarpon Springs. Tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Gives you a feel for the area. We enjoyed our visit. It is open to the public Wednesdays and Fridays from 11-3 so plan accordingly.
