The city was officially founded in 1849 and quickly grew into a bustling port town, with industries like cigar-making, fishing, and shipping contributing to its growth.

One of the most significant events in Tampa's history was the Spanish-American War, which took place in 1898. Tampa served as a major military base for the United States during the conflict, and many soldiers and supplies were shipped from Tampa to Cuba, where the war was being fought.
