Gulf City

Gulf City is a small town located in Florida (Hillsborough County). I went here on 7/27/2015.

According to the Ghosttown website,

Gulf City was founded in the mid 17th century. It was founded by a British Pirate by the name of Ben Margoza. In the 19th century, it went into decline. In 1865, it was listed as having a population of over 76 residents. The town included a post office. However, by the 1920s, the town was abandoned for lack of income for many of its residents. The townsite of Gulf City is now owned by Hillsborough County and sits completely abandoned. By Gerry Berrios
