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.
This historic home was built for the family of T. C. Taliaferro and remains private property.
