The Greek Community of Tarpon Springs is the result of a collaboration between the City of Tarpon Springs' Center for Gulf Coast Folklife and the University of South Florida Library's Special & Digital Collections. It represents a key component of the Center's Greek Community Documentation Project, the mission of which is to collect, document, preserve, and educate about the distinctive cultural heritage of Tarpon Springs' Greek community. Within the framework of an on-line exhibition, it includes images, audio and visual recordings, and archival materials that reflect the history and culture of the community.

Over time, the project team will add items and information to enhance the exhibition. We encourage the public not only to view this site, but also to contribute their knowledge and documentary materials in order to create a living and vibrant community space.
