The Tampa Bay History Center Has Much To Offer

The Tampa Bay History Center is located at 801 Old Water Street in Tampa, Florida. Located near the historically important Fort Brooke reservation (the birthplace of modern Tampa), the Center contains 60,000 square feet of exhibits depicting almost 500 years of recorded history and 12,000 years of human habitation in this region.

Part of the collection that may be of particular interest to genealogists is the Touchton collection of Florida cartography. This collection boasts 400 years of Florida Maps, 1513 to 1913.

You can check out the Center's website to get all the particulars at
