Long Description:
In 1908 the quickest way to get from Tampa to Upper Pinellas was to catch a steamship to St. Petersburg and ride the rails north to Tarpon Springs. In 1910 a new rail line connected Tampa and north Pinellas and workers built a small depot for Sulphur Springs known as Gulf Coast Junction. During the 1920s land boom the Tampa and Gulf Coast Railroad, affectionatley known as the 'Tug and Grunt' built this new larger depot.
