General Note:
Ybor looked to this area when labor troubles, fires and other calamities doomer the tobacco trade in Key West. He worked out a deal with the fledgling Tampa Board of Trade to buy up considerable land and then he and other cigar manufacturers came to town. Sanchez & Haya was the first factory to get into production, turning out the first stogie on April 26, 1886. But shortly afterward Ybor was open for business in the big brick building.
