Built in 1845, the Chinsegut Hill Historic Site is a stately two-story manor house poised atop one of central Florida’s highest hilltops. It is the centerpiece of a 114 acre estate surrounded by ancient Spanish moss-draped oaks and natural habitat.
On the National Register of Historic Places, the Chinsegut Hill Museum, located in Hernando County, is brimming with artifacts and rich history. During the 1920s and 1930s, the home hosted such guests as Thomas Edison, Helen Keller and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, among others.
The Tampa Bay History Center, whose focus includes preserving and sharing important area stories that shaped Florida history, provides curatorial services and guided tours of the historical house and grounds.
