This mansion features the Classical Revival Style and was built for the family of Thomas Carson Taliaferro. Taliaferro established the Bank of Tampa in 1883. He also served as the chief of the city's early volunteer fire department. Taliaferro and his bank were responsible for providing the financial incentives that convinced Vincente Ybor to relocate his cigar-making factories from Key West to Tampa.
