Historic Preservation Designations
The Architectural Review & Historic Preservation office has put together a
of all current designations. The document is comprised of the City of
Tampa's four local historic districts, 48 local historic landmarks, and five
multiple property designations, which encompass approximately 4,214
The City's designation protects those properties that have been determined
to be of distinctive character, architectural value, and cultural
significance to the city. Each structure represents a piece of the physical
development of Tampa's history, from the few existing farm houses located in
what are now inner city neighborhoods, to the grand Tampa Bay Hotel, to the
modest shotgun structures that were built by the hundreds to support the
early cigar industry. Each building was constructed to satisfy Tampa's
booming growth as the city transformed itself from a farming community to a
major urban center.
The majority of the properties described in this document are also listed in
the National Register of Historic Places. The National Register is the
United States' official list of historic places. The listing identifies
buildings, structures, and objects as well as historic districts that are
historically, architecturally, or archaeologically significant.
The Historic Preservation Designations document can be purchased for $15.00
at the Architectural Review & Historic Preservation office located at 1400 N.
Boulevard, 2nd floor.
