General Note:
While Macfarlane's subdivision formed the center of West Tampa, the participation and investment of his partners were essential to Howard Avenue and Union Street the area's development, from Columbus Drive on the north to Fig Street on the south from the Hillsborough River on the east to Himes Avenue on the west. Dr. Philip H. Collins owned the subdivisions of El Cerro, Collins' Addition, and Collins' Second Addition. His son-in-law George Nelson Benjamin obtained two large subdivisions in 1892 from William B. Henderson. He ended these orange grove properties and promoted the growth of West Tampa's industry,serving also as Treasurer in the West Tampa Land Improvement Company and as Director of the Bank of West Tampa.
