History

In 1916, Ransom E. Olds purchased 37,541 acres (151.92 km²) on the northern tip of Tampa Bay in order to design a planned community. The property appealed to Olds because of its proximity to several other towns (including Tampa and Tarpon Springs) as well as being located on the Tampa and Gulf Coast division of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad. The town went through a number of name changes. In 1927 the name was again changed, this time to Tampa Shores. And finally, in 1937, it went back to its old name of Oldsmar. The city sits on a plateau with an elevation never rising over 20 feet (1 m) above sea level. In 1921, the town was hit by a devastating hurricane. Large trees were uprooted and most of the city's oldest homes still remain on Park Boulevard. Many homes were moved by barge to St Petersburg during the 1920s and 1930s. By 1930s, Olds had over $4.5 million invested in the community. When he realized he was not growing as anticipated, he began liquidating his assets by selling unplatted parcels of land. The rest of the land was traded for the Fort Harrison Hotel in Clearwater, Kansas. By the time Olds left the community in 1930, he left the land for the Beliveer Hotel in Kansas. The land was nearly completed when he traded it for the Clearwater Hotel in 1953.
