General Note

  • In 1962, 'Trader' Frank and his wife Jo Byars opened some small gardens adjacent to their Signal House gift shop on Gulf Boulevard in Indian Rocks Beach. The gift shop burned down in 1963 and they rebuilt the shop with expanded gardens in 1964. By 1969 the complex would consist of several gift shops and "south seas" themed gardens complete with exotic birds and monkeys, as well as Trader Frank's Restaurant, on more than twelve acres. In 1986 the Byars sold Tiki Gardens to foreign investors who later sold it to Pinellas County in 1990. The buildings were demolished and property turned into a beach access parking lot.
