Ybor City in Hillsborough County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Giunta Homestead and Farm
After years of work, Salvatore and Vittoria saved enough to buy land at the corner of 11th Avenue and 24th Street, where they farmed heirloom produce and herbs to supplement their income. They gradually bought more land and, in 1924, built a home for their growing family. Like many of their Sicilian neighbors, the Giuntas grew their own food, raised chickens, baked bread in an outdoor oven, and were largely self-sufficient. The homestead of nearly an entire block contained the house, auxiliary buildings, farm fields, and an orchard. For over a century, the Giunta family has carried on their farming tradition in Ybor City. The
