The Tampa Bay History Center Presents Re-Placing Fort Brooke, An Exhibit
Presented in partnership with the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN), visitors will be able to see the fort and the evolution of downtown Tampa as never before. In addition to early maps of Tampa’s Garrison District and artifacts recovered from the site in the 1970s and 1980s, the exhibit will feature digitally-rectified overlays of the original fort.
Originally known simply as the “camp on the Hillsborough River,” Fort Brooke was established at the mouth of the Hillsborough River by the U.S. Army in 1824. The City of Tampa would flourish beyond the borders of the fort, at Whiting Street, the fort’s northern boundary.
Visitors will see some of the earliest photos of Tampa’s waterfront, how the shoreline changed, and how Tampa’s modern street grid developed.
Even though Courtney Trace Apartment Homes in Brandon, Florida provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
