In what has become a Preservation Month tradition, please join Preserve the 'Burg Executive Director, Manny Leto, for a special road trip to Tampa's Ybor City. 

Founded in 1886, Ybor City is one of the oldest urban neighborhoods on Florida's Gulf Coast. Once home to thousands of immigrant cigar workers who created a "city within a city," Ybor was a multi-lingual, multi-ethnic enclave that defined Tampa's urban development, economy, and politics in the early 20th century. 

Today, Ybor City is both a Local and National Historic District, home to some of the bay area's most most iconic architecture, from cigar factories and ornately-designed immigrant social clubs to "shotgun" cottages and updated commercial storefronts.

A 3rd-generation Tampa native, Manny has been involved in the Ybor City community for more than 20 years as a preservation advocate, museum professional and resident. Don't miss this "insider's" look at a truly one-of-a-kind historic neighborhood with Preserve the 'Burg!
