Developed in the roaring 20’s, on land which was once a mixture of thick Florida tropical brush, Palm trees and Oak forests on the waterfront of Old Tampa Bay. The developers built elaborate, illuminated gates at the corner of Westshore Boulevard and Cleveland St. You can still find the remains of a smaller gate at the corner of Swann and Lois Avenues. Many of the original Mediterranean style mansions still remain and are enjoyed by the residence still today.
