Introduction

Our neighborhood in the greater Hyde Park area is composed of two subdivisions: West Hyde Park, most of which was platted in 1906 and Morrison Grove, the first part of which was platted in 1910. Both subdivisions had their various additions and changes completed in 1911. West Hyde Park was carved out of the original citrus grove and home site of James M. Watrous, who arrived in the area in 1876, and Morrison Grove came from the original citrus grove and home site of William A. Morrison who arrived in 1879. The dividing line for their properties runs down the middle of Willow Avenue with Watrous to the west and Morrison to the east. Mr Watrous continued to live in his home (1307 W Morrison Avenue) after selling the land around it. Mr Morrison, however, sold his home (850 S Newport Avenue) when he sold the his property around it and built a new home on Hyde Park Avenue in the “real Hyde Park,” that is, the subdivision actually named Hyde Park that is immediately south of the University of Tampa.
