Old becomes new again at Sunken Gardens history center

It’s considered one of the first real roadside attractions in the state of Florida. Sunken Gardens has been part of St. Pete’s history since 1911, and this month the city honored that tradition by opening a new history center on the grounds. Sunken Garden’s current entrance is off of 4th Street, but in the 1940s, the public actually entered off of 18th Street. All those years later, the building that housed the original entrance and gift shop is still there. So the city thought, "Why not restore it to become the new history center?"
