The first citizen of Ybor City was Gavino Gutierrez, Spanish civil engineer.

Gutierrez investigated the area in 1884 as a site for a guava processing plant. The guava plant was never erected, but on the strength of Gutierrez recommendations his friends, Vicente Martinez Ybor and Ignacio Haya, brought the clear Havana cigar industry to Tampa. Gutierrez surveyed and platted what is now Ybor City and located his estate of Spanish Park on this spot. In later years it became the site of a restaurant and scene of many fiestas.
