The first mention of Sulphur Springs in the history of Tampa dates back to 1889 when the Tampa commissioners contracted for the building of a bridge to cross the Hillsborough River at the county road now know as Van Dyke Place. Completed in 1891 the bridge was used until 1961. By 1901, Dr. John Mills had acquired land in Sulphur Springs and had laid out walks, built bath houses and created a fish pond, started a restaurant, built a dock and a pool. A steamer traveled the river between downtown Tampa and Mills’ Springs. In 1904, Josiah Richardson purchased 100 acres from Dr. Mills, filed a subdivision called the “Sulphur Springs addition to Tampa” and changed the history of the area. Around 1927, the 225 feet tall Sulphur Springs water tower was built. Today it stands providing a landmark for the neighborhood.

Today Sulphur Springs is a combination of historic homes mixed with new homes. Many homes are located along the Hillsborough River and under the shade of numerous grand oak trees.
