About Tarpon Springs
Tarpon Springs boasts 51 miles of waterfront property, making it an attractive destination for visitors and residents alike. Though the city is named for the fish that's so abundant in its waters, it's also known as the "Sponge Capital of the World" for another well-known aquatic resident. Downtown Tarpon Springs dates back to the late 1800s and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Attractions like the 1883 Safford House Museum and Historic Antique District at Craig Park offer glimpses of Tarpon Springs from centuries past.
The first settlers in Tarpon Springs were a mix of farmers and fisherman, who named the city after large groups of tarpon fish they saw leaping out of the bayous in the area. Hamilton Disston purchased the land in 1881 and worked to put together a plan for a new city. By 1887, Tarpon Springs was the county's first incorporated city. When the Orange Belt Railway arrived in the city in 1888, it quickly evolved into a popular winter destination for elite northerners.
Tarpon Springs got its start in the sponge industry in the 1880s, when John K. Cheyney decided to found the area's first official sponge business. Many people moved to the area from the Bahamas and Key West, finding jobs in the hooking and processing of sponges. In 1905, John Corcoris popularized the Greek sponge-diving technique. He recruited a group of Greek divers and crew members, who used their traditional methods to teach the Tarpon Springs locals a new way to grow their local industry. In the next few decades, the sponge industry became a multi-million-dollar business, until an algae epidemic destroyed much of the sponge fields. Shrimping grew in popularity until the sponges were able to recover.
Today there is still a small active sponge industry. Visitors can often view sponge fishermen working at the Sponge Docks on Dodecanese Boulevard. In addition, you can visit shops, restaurants and museum exhibits that detail Tarpon Springs' Greek heritage.
