South Tampa MLS SearchSouth Tampa is the name commonly used to refer to residential and commercial areas located anywhere South of Kennedy Boulevard. Yet more than just residential or commercial area, South Tampa is a community that has a unique blend of culture, history, beauty and convenience. Many consider this area to be somewhat of a "melting pot," bringing together so many aspects from so many other places. Many of the homes that exist within this area have a Victorian elegance to them, and with the tree-shaded streets and beautiful Bay scenery, South Tampa FL is a truly unique area.

Parts of South Tampa's history date back to the Roaring Twenties, with architecture and ambience that still reflect the extravagant beauty that was commonplace in that time period. Historic properties lay scattered throughout the area including the "Honeymoon House" of Peter O. Knight, the man who founded Lee County, started the Exchange National Bank, Tampa Gas Company and the Tampa Suburban Railway. Other remarkably preserved Historic Buildings and Homes owned by influential people of the past stand in South Tampa today. With such an impressive historical background and a pristine elegance that radiates the area, South Tampa is an obvious choice for a supreme living environment.

In order to keep the historic appeal alive and thriving, several protection and preservation committees have been instituted by state and local decision. One such operation is the Hyde Park Preservation Inc., which protects the architectural and historical integrity of the Hyde Park area. The HPPI even arranges local law enforcement officials to patrol the Hyde Park streets during special event nights in order to help support a safe area.
