Developed with a $5,000 grant from FHC, the Walk Tarpon Springs Audio Tour is a free app designed to be downloaded to a smart phone or tablet. The app will take you on a narrated, self-guided tour of 10 stops in the Greektown Historic District—with historical images and music.
The Greektown District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2014 as Florida’s first official Traditional Cultural Property. It is significant for its tenacious continuity of traditional culture, extensive Greek infrastructure, and as the only Greek American community based on the sponge industry. Many of its fascinating stories will now be accessible through the app.
