A Florida community with the highest concentration of Greek people in the country has been recognized as a Traditional Cultural Property by the National Park Service. Locals hope the designation for the Tarpon Springs Greektown Historic District brings tourists to the area.
The first-in-the-state designation was announced in June. Tarpon Springs Art and Cultural Resources Curator Tina Bucuvalas submitted the application.
“There’s nothing like Tarpon Springs anywhere, really," she says.
