Notes
Survey number HABS FL-510
Building/structure dates: 1925 initial construction
Significance: This building's architectural and historical significance is derived from its contribution to the West Tampa National Register Historic District. This ca. 1925 two-story camel-back bungalow appears to have been moved to this location ca. 1963. Some historic features that remain intact include weatherboard siding, wood double-hung sash windows, and a brick chimney. The city of West Tampa was established in 1895 as a community adjacent to, but separate from, the City of Tampa and remained an incorporated city for thirty years. In 1887, a group of Tampa businessmen, led by Tampa lawyer Hugh C. Macfarlane, began to promote the area west of the Hillsborough River as a possible location for a second cigar manufacturing center. They were successful as cigar factories, social clubs, schools, residences, commercial buildings, and other public institutions were constructed. Most of the housing consisted of wood frame vernacular rowhouses and bungalows. This house is a good example of the two-story camel-back bungalow found occasionally in West Tampa.
