One of Tarpon Springs’ best kept secrets is the 1883 Safford House Museum. Visiting the home of one of the city’s original developers is a journey back in time.The Safford House has been restored to its original Victorian splendor and is open to the public. Today the Safford residence is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is owned and operated by the City of Tarpon Springs as a museum. The house is a fine example of late 19th century Florida vernacular architecture and is filled with period furnishings and original family possessions that bring the Safford family to life. A visit offers the opportunity to get acquainted with the family and to experience Florida life more than 100 years ago. The late 1800s, when Anson P.K. Safford and his family resided in Tarpon Springs, was an era of gracious living without the pressures of modern society. Touring their house takes visitors back to that restful time and place. From the charming porch swing to the large inviting dining room, the house is filled with pleasant spaces where friends and family gathered for meals and social events. But the Saffords were not an ordinary family: Anson Safford was the former territorial governor of Arizona; his wife, Soledad, was an accomplished social leader of Mexican background; and Safford’s sister Mary Jane was the town’s first doctor. The Safford House is located in the historic district off Grand Boulevard at 23 Parkin Court. It was donated to the City of Tarpon Springs in 1994. The extensive restoration was funded by the State of Florida, Division of Historical Resources and the City of Tarpon Springs. Furnishings were provided in part by a Save America’s Treasures grant, and donations by local residents.
