2017 Safety Harbor’s Centennial

You might have heard that Safety Harbor has quite a birthday coming up in 2017. As a matter of fact, our city will officially be 100 years old this coming year!

100 years seems like a long time, but the Safety Harbor Museum & Cultural Center will be bringing you Safety Harbor’s history from the very beginning. In fact, we will be featuring a series of exhibits, galleries, and talks to tell you about all things Safety Harbor over the course of 2017.

Interested in more information about our programs and exhibits? Check out the schedule below or contact us at 727-724-1562!
