Tampa Bay Hotel


Resources to enhance your Museum experience

A New Book by the Curators of the Henry B. Plant Museum!

We are excited to announce the release of Tampa Bay Hotel, part of the Images of America series.  This new book, by Heather Trubee Brown and Susan V. Carter, is a treasure trove of carefully selected photographs, postcards, and advertisements from the Plant Museum’s archives.  Readers will be swept back to the heyday of the Tampa Bay Hotel, with its silver minarets, fanciful architecture, luxurious accommodations and Gilded Age lifestyle.
A foreward by Executive Director Cynthia Gandee Zinober and an introduction by University of Tampa Associate Professor Dr. Charles McGraw Groh set the stage for five chapters of new information, rarely seen images, and stories of soldiers, celebrities, entrepreneurs and much more. 

Watch a book talk with authors Heather Trubee Brown and Susan V. Carter.

Tampa Bay Hotel is available for purchase in the Museum Online Store.  Retail price is $23.99.
