The Ybor City Historic District ( EE-bor)[3] is a U.S. National Historic Landmark District District (designated as such on December 14, 1990) located in Tampa, Florida. The district is bounded by 6th Avenue, 13th Street, 10th Avenue and 22nd Street, East Broadway between 13th and 22nd Streets. Ybor City contains a total of 956 historic buildings, including an unparalleled collection of architecture with Spanish-Cuban influence, as well as historic cigar factory buildings and associated infrastructure. The area was developed by businessman Vicente Martinez Ybor beginning in 1886, and was for a time the world's leading supplier of cigars.[4]

The Ybor City Museum State Park is located in the district. The Latino Barrio Commission, a city of Tampa-sanctioned committee of neighborhood community and business leaders, architects, and local residents, is charged with "preserving the historic fabric of the District and maintaining its architectural integrity."[5]

District boundaries

The original Ybor City development covers an area roughly bounded on the north by 21st Avenue, the east by 22nd Street, the west by Nebraska Avenue, and the south by Adamo Drive. In 1974, an area centered on Ybor City's 7th Avenue business district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The landmark district designated in 1990 substantially enlarged this to include much of the surviving architecture of the development. That district consists of three separate sections, separated due to the construction of Interstate 4 and by an urban renewal project in 1965 that resulted in the demolition of 70 acres (28 ha) of historic buildings and the construction of the Nick Nuccio Parkway.[4]
