1895 ~ 1995

Hugh C. MacFarlane, an immigrant from Scotland, purchased land in November 1886 and built a cigar factory that started production on June 15, 1892. MacFarlane and other developers offered free land and buildings, bringing in more cigar factories and growth that led to the formation of the City of West Tampa on May 18, 1895. Other immigrants from Cuba, Spain, Italy,Scotland, Ireland, Germany and different parts of the United States made up the population, giving the town its distinctive, vibrant character. After 30 years as aprospering municipality West Tampa was annexed to the City of Tampa on January 1, 1925
