General Note: During the 1880s, Hugh Campbell Macfarlane, a Scottish-born lawyer who had moved to Tampa in 1883, began assembling land west of the Hillsborough River with the idea of developing a new cigar manufacturing center. The industry had already spread to Tampa, located on the east side of the Hillsborough River, with the creation of Ybor City in 1885. The arrival of Spanish entrepreneurs and Cuban and Spanish cigar makers quickly transformed the Tampa subdivision of Ybor City into a thriving community that soon rivaled Florida's Key West as a center for the production of luxury, hand-rolled cigars. Observing the success of Ybor City, Macfarlane decided to build another cigar-making area on undeveloped land across the river from Tampa.
