A Brief Community History
Wimauma was founded in 1902 by C.H. Davis. The town's eastern boundaries were originally located about halfway along a railroad route that connected Durant with Manatee County and Sarasota. The town was also originally centered around Lake Wimauma.
Wimauma used to have a city government that was established in 1925. Hillsborough County officials discovered in 1993 that the government stopped functioning in the 1930s. As a result, the community's incorporation was officially revoked.
Wimauma's railroad depot was used a transfer point for several Tampa Bay-area commuter train routes until 1968. This passenger traffic encouraged the construction of several many fine Atomic Age-style homes during the 1950s. Some of these homes are still extant.
Modern interest in Wimauma's real estate market was established during the 1970s by Tampa Bay-area residents who discovered Wimauma's quiet surroundings and reasonable real estate costs. This discovery encouraged many new residents to move to Wimauma during the 1980s and 1990s.
Wimauma is now a quiet community that offers a peaceful lifestyle that is enriched by access to many fun outdoor attractions. These benefits make living in Wimauma worthwhile for anyone who enjoys escaping from the bustle and stress of modern city life.
