In addition to factories, the district's buildings include workers' housing; the ethnic clubs organized by Ybor City's immigrants, who included Italians and Germans as well as Cubans and Spaniards; and the commercial buildings that served the community. Most buildings date to the first two decades of the 20th century. Historically, Ybor City was a rare multi-ethnic and multi-racial industrial community in the Deep South and it is highly illustrative of manifold aspects of the history of ethnic and race relations.
