The oldest home in Tampa’s Hyde Park neighborhood dates back to the early 1870s, but the area’s history stretches much further into the past. That section of Tampa, south and west of the Hillsborough River, likely had been settled for thousands of years by American Indians, and since the 1700s by a variety of other groups.
By the middle of the 18th century, a small settlement known as Spanishtown, home to Cuban fishermen and women, formed on the shores of Hillsborough Bay. The creek that bisected it, Spanishtown Creek, emptied into the bay near the present-day intersection of Swann Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard. - http://www.tbo.com/hyde-park-at-the-heart-of-tampa-history-20131020/
