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.

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.
