Introduction

In collaboration with City of Tarpon Springs' Greek Community Documentation Project staff, the University of South Florida Library’s Special Collections Division is hosting this website documenting the Tarpon Springs Greek community. Through it, we hope that community members and the general public will be able to contribute to and/or access this important historical collection. 

The Greek Community Documentation Project collects, documents, and preserves the cultural heritage of Tarpon Springs’ Greek community, and educates the public about it though interpretive websites, programs, and exhibitions.  The project is a key component of the City’s Center for Gulf Coast Folklife, the mission of which is to identify, document, present, and preserve our unique traditional culture.  

The online exhibition is built on the basic framework of the City of Tarpon Springs's permanent exhibition The Greek Community of Tarpon Springs, on display at the Tarpon Springs Heritage Museum. However, we have expanded upon it with substantially more images, interviews, and other primary sources.
