It is well known that downtown Clearwater contains the headquarters of the Church of Scientology. Previously, none of its buildings were open to the public except for special events. Now there are 7 buildings open to visitors 7 days a week, 10am to 10pm.
The buildings are located along Fort Harrison between Cleveland and Drew, providing a substantial upgrade to the downtown area. The Church also opened a public park on the corner of Drew and Fort Harrison.
The former Clearwater Bank building contains the Scientology Information Center. A little further along Fort Harrison to the north are a series of newly renovated and remodeled storefronts that contain exhibits for the Church’s social betterment activities, including: human rights, Way to Happiness, drug-free world, crime-free world, volunteer community service, and the exposure of mental health & human rights abuses (this last exhibit is particularly thought-provoking and some might say shocking).
New additions to the list of things to do in downtown Clearwater!
