It is considered the First Suburb of Tampa, even though it is only 1 mile from the heart of downtown.
Ybor City was founded as an independent town in 1885 by a group of cigar manufacturers led by Vicente Martinez-Ybor and was annexed by Tampa in 1887. The original population was mostly composed of Cuban and Spanish immigrants who worked in the cigar factories.

A trolley line had been built connecting the city with Sulphur Springs making convenient travel to the “suburbs” possible and inviting. The trolley made it possible to commute from home to work.
