Outside, you can relax in the outdoor lounge or stretch out on the wrap around porch. The Sparkman House has five wood burning fireplaces that will be just what you need on those cool Florida evenings.
Theresa Clinton is the consummate Innkeeper. She is affable and welcoming. She designed and decorated the house filling it with beautiful North Carolina furniture, chandeliers and other charming decor. It is simply stunning. When asked why a B&B in this house, Clinton said, “since our children are grown and off to college, we wanted a simpler life so we looked to Plant City. We stumbled across this house, and when I saw it, I instantly fell in love.”
“It has been a secret love of mine to own a B&B, so when we found out the house was zoned for that, we thought it would be nice to open one in a historic home built by a family that had an impact on the development of Plant City.”
John Gadsden Sparkman built the home in 1905 for his family. He was a businessman and was one of the influential pioneers who helped build Plant City. Sparkman served as mayor of Plant City for several terms. The Sparkman family lived in the home until the 1960’s.
