TARPON SPRINGS

Ever wondered what "the most photographed home in Pinellas County" is worth? The sellers of the Cresent Place, the 1886 Victorian on Spring Bayou, say it should go for just shy of $2-million in its first debut on the market in 32 years. The home was built by Edward Knapp, a Kansas hardware magnate who convened the meeting to incorporate Tarpon Springs, the county's oldest city, in 1887. The elegant 5, 000-sq.-ft. mansion's address is 115 Spring Blvd. South.
