It was built by developer Ed Haley and was used as a community center for many years. The hotel was operated by Ransom E.

The fort was named for William Henry Harrison and was the western counterpart of Fort Brooke in what became Tampa. (See Clearwater, Florida#History.)In 1953 the hotel was bought by the Jack Tar Hotels and became known as the "New Fort Harrison Hotel, a Jack Tar Hotel".
