Gibsonton Real Estate
Gibsonton was famous as a sideshow wintering town, where various circus "freaks" would spend the off season.
It was home to Percilla the Monkey girl, the Anatomical Wonder and the Lobster Boy. Siamese twin sisters ran a fruit stand here. It is the only post office with a counter for dwarves.
Aside from the agreeable winter climate, Gibsonton offered unique circus zoning laws that allowed residents to keep elephants and circus trailers on their front lawns.
