Gibsonton, Florida, often referred to as “Gibtown” by the locals, is a beautiful place with a very interesting history. Situated on Florida’s West Coast in Hillsborough County, a short ten miles south of East Tampa, this delightful small community is home to roughly twenty thousand residents. It is conveniently situated on Highway 41 near Riverview, which affords its citizens relatively easy access to all of the nearby amenities and attractions. That said, within the community you’ll find all you need, including a gas station, grocery store, the Showtown USA Bar, a library, and even a tattoo parlor. However, the most notable Gibtown attraction is the International Independent Showmen’s Museum which sits just outside of town.
Gibsonton’s history as the wintering home for traveling show folks is still evident as your drive through the community. Here and there you may find an opportunity to view an exotic animal, or may see a concession trailer, or parts to old amusement park rides. Once the part-time home to Jeanie the Half-Girl, Inferno the Fire Eater, Lobster Boy, The Giant, The Bearded Lady, and other nomadic carnival entertainers, Gibstonton today is very different than during the period when big shows were the rave. However, the strange nostalgia of the community lives on in unusual exhibits and cotton candy, and while most of its famous residents have passed, a few of their descendants still call Gibsonton home. Though its history is quite strange, in many ways this family-friendly community is like many others, and students residing here are served by Corr Elementary School, Eisenhower Middle School, and East Bay High School.
