Old Time Fun

Holiday Friday, December 7

If the good ol' days are what you're pining for this holiday season, then take a trip back in time at the Safford House Museum during its fifth annual Victorian Candlelight Tour. Explore the 1883 home of original Tarpon Springs developer Anson P.K. Safford and see how Christmas was celebrated more than 100 years ago. The home-turned-museum — which has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1974 — is decked inside and out with Victorian-style adornments. Seasonal refreshments are served throughout the tours, music is played on restored, early 19th-century Gibson and Davis square piano sets, and local toy connoisseur Robert Clemente presents an exhibit of his vast collection of vintage toys. Through Dec. 9, 5:30-8 p.m. Fri.-Sun., 23 Parkin Court., Tarpon Springs, $10 general/$5 members (free admission for children with a paid adult), 727-942-5605, tarponarts.org.
