The Tampa River Walk


Your Choice to Make History

The first twelve honorees have been named and placed along the Riverwalk. But, that is just the beginning. Six more will be placed every year. Your participation is needed. How?


Your nominations of historical persons who have contributed significantly to the development of this community are encouraged. Click on the Nominate button to make a nomination. The final decision will be made each year by our outstanding Selection Committee of nine historians who welcome your nominations.


Your financial contribution is also needed. Each monument costs approximately $20,000.00. The first six have already been fully financed through private donations. We must now raise funds to pay for future years, and NOW is a great time and opportunity.


The Historical Monument Trail was awarded  matching grants by Hillsborough County. As a result, for every dollar raised, Hillsborough County will match on a 1:1 ratio! Your contributions really will matter!


To make a contribution , contact us here or at our Facebook page shown below, or contact Steve Anderson directly through his contact information below. Contributions should be made to "Friends of the Riverwalk" which is a tax deductible, 501 (c) (3) entity, and an indication should be made on the memo section "Historical Monuments". This will assure your contribution is dedicated to the Historical Monument Trail.
