As long-time residents can best appreciate, Clearwater’s Fort Harrison Hotel is not just a splendid example of traditional Southern Florida architecture. To generations of Clearwater citizens and visitors from every corner of the world, the Fort Harrison has been more like a close friend, a neighbor known and loved by all, with a rich character and life all its own. Its walls and grounds harbor fond memories of cotillions, high school proms, dinner parties and performances gone by.
Since 1975, the Church of Scientology has been the proud caretaker of this most famous of Clearwater�s citizens, and has seen to the complete restoration of the hotel to its original splendor and beyond, from its lobby and restaurants, to well-maintained grounds and the stunning Crystal Ballroom.
Many have thanked us for sharing the Fort Harrison with them. In return, we would like to say thank you to the community and all those we’ve had the opportunity to meet. It is our pleasure to work with others in the community to preserve Clearwater’s heritage and beauty, while improving all aspects of our city and the quality of life for all.
