  • The Tarpon Springs Sponge Exchange was incorporated in 1908 as a shareholding organization to provide for the storage and sale of sponges. It was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on July 24, 1971. After failure to develop a viable preservation project in the 1970s by the Tarpon Springs Area Historical Society and the City of Tarpon Springs the property was sold to a private individual. The property was subsequently redeveloped which involved the demolition of approximately 90% of the historic structure. As a result the property was later removed from the listing on November 5, 1984.
