Guided Tours by Tampa Bay History Center Now Available

The Chinsegut Hill Historic Site welcomes visitors to explore one of Tampa Bay’s most iconic places. Poised atop Florida’s second-highest point, the 114-acre estate reflects thousands of years of Florida history.

This pre-Civil War plantation manor house has been host to such famous figures as Helen Keller, Thomas Edison, J.C. Penney, and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, among others. As a unique partnership with Hernando County government, the Tampa Bay History Center now provides curatorial and interpretive services. After months of careful research, archiving, and interpretive signage placement, the magnificent manor house and the estate are now open for tours guided by knowledgeable Tampa Bay Historic Society docents. Tours are available every half hour Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Book a tour and learn more…
