PLANNED FEATURES & AMENITIES
Built in 1885, Casa Socarrás is one of the oldest mercantile buildings in Ybor City. Named for prominent early West Tampa pioneer and hero of the Cuban revolution, Fernando Figueredo Socarrás (1846-1929), it is also the original site of the El Liseo Cubano community center where Jose’ Marti delivered two of the 1891 speeches that united the Cuban people and launched the War of Independence from Spain.
Born in Camagüey, Cuba, Socarrás served as a soldier, engineer, military leader and member of the revolutionary government in the Ten Years War (1868–1878) against Spanish rule. In 1878, he moved to Florida with his wife and child where he served as a State Legislator, Superintendent of Schools, and the first mayor of West Tampa.
When the War of Independence broke out in 1895, José Marti appointed Socarrás to head the local area’s efforts in support of the revolution. He return to Cuba in 1898, serving as a U.S. appointed Customs Officer, Cuba’s Director of Communications and Treasurer General.
