History of Tampa

Tampa was first settled back in 1823. And surprisingly, the beaches weren't the major draw, even thenÑit was the United States Army's Fort Brooke, a frontier outpost. The area changed and grew quite quickly after that. Cigar manufacturing was a big part of Tampa's initial growth, but it would be easy to argue that today's biggest draw is the Buccaneers.
