How Did We Get Sponge Docks?

First, in 1887 the railroad service to New York began and created a boom for Tarpon Springs. The gorgeous Victorian Mansions you see around the Bayous were built by wealthy people who came to visit and fell in love with the area. In due time, they helped establish churches, schools, businesses, and hotels (so that more wealthy tourists could visit and fall in love).

Secondly, Lots of Sponges grew in the waters around Tarpon Springs; a huge sponge industry developed when the Greek divers came. At the same time, the Greek families opened shops and restaurants, pastry shops and markets.

If you’re in need of a pet sitter,  Trinity Pet Sitters, LLC  is insured and bonded and takes great care of your pets.
