Located just north of downtown Tampa, the Seminole Heights area is a tree-shaded neighborhood nestled in the heart of the urban corridor. Many of the bungalows and restored homes date back to the early 1900s. Some of these homes are included in our National Register and local Historic Districts to ensure their preservation for generations to come. The neighborhood continues to grow and attract new residents of all ages and diverse cultural backgrounds with its beautiful homes and thriving independent business community.
