History of Tampa

The city's origins make for an interesting story - initially, a small Us Army base was set up here in 1820 to check on the Seminole Indians. 1880 marked a turning point -the railroad was extended till Tampa and the Hillsborough River was made into a docking yard for ships. Tampa became an important port and a major cigar-manufacturing center, with many Cubans migrating here to work in this booming industry.
