Tarpon Springs' historic Greektown district added to
National Register as Traditional Cultural Property
Tarpon Springs' historic Greektown district has been added to the National Register of Historic Places as a Traditional Cultural Property, according to a story posted on the website Greek USA Reporter.
The Traditional Cultural Property distinction is the first for a Florida community, the story said, and stems from the National Register's search for places to serve as models for ethnic communities.
Securing the distinction was a priority of Tina Bucuvalas, a folklorist and the city's curator of arts and historical resources. Bucuvalas conducted the research and wrote the proposal.
