Safety Harbor Stories


Safety Harbor Stories is a project that aims to collect the history of our city through stories told by former and current Safety Harbor residents. We hope to have an archive that we will be able to share with future generations to remind them of where our city came from and how it got to where it is today.

By collecting these stories, we are building bonds with past and current residents through shared memories, family connections and the pride that each person feels by being apart of our community.

We are currently looking for more people to tell us their own stories of Safety Harbor. If you are a current or former Safety Harbor resident and you would like to be filmed for our Safety Harbor Stories project, please get in contact with us. We would love to hear what you have to share.

Our Videos
The 1st video we've put together features former Safety Harbor Resident, David Nichols. David lived in Safety Harbor from the late 40s until the 60s. During this time, he served in the Marines 1955-1959. He fondly recalls the great families that are recognizable throughout Pinellas County today, like the Booth's, the McMullen's and even The Safety Harbor Spa's founder, Dr. Baranoff. He also reminisces about what they did for fun, and how they got around Pinellas County. Watch and enjoy this venture back in time.
The next video in our Safety Harbor Stories series was filmed at Philippe Park during the Safety Harbor reunion. Current and former residents of our city gathered to reminisce about their days growing up in Safety Harbor, and to catch up with old friends. Some of the best stories include the days of dirt roads, the Pier, and even the beginnings of the Safety Harbor Recreation department. Through these stories, we see why people love our city, and why it continues to grow.
