    Abstract
    The Ybor City Oral History Project provides primary source material about a culturally rich and diversified historic community in Tampa. Established in the 1880s, Ybor City drew immigrants from mostly Spain, Cuba and Italy as a cigar-manufacturing center, and has been named as a National Historic Landmark District. Oral histories include interviews with noted historians Hampton Dunn, Gary Mormino and Tony Pizzo. These stories reveal community development and redevelopment, historical preservation and rich cultural experiences that make up a unique part of Tampa. As an open collection, more content will be added over time. (Summary)
