Ruskin, FL

Ruskin is located in Hillsborough County, Florida near Tampa’s South shore and has blossomed since the early 2000s. It’s population, which doubled from 2000 to 2010, now tops 17,000 residents.

Background

The community of Ruskin was founded on August 7, 1908 on the shores of the Little Manatee River. Dr. George Miller, an attorney and professor at Ruskin College in Trenton, Missouri, and Mrs. Adaline Miller developed the community in its infancy. It was named after John Ruskin and was originally a social experiment in his philosophical views.

The area began as an agricultural community, with a focus on tomato farms. Today, it has evolved into a suburban community, especially in the last two decades.

The community grew up around U.S. Route 41, which was only a 9-foot-wide road in the 1920s. Now, U.S. Route 41 has become a 4-lane highway, and along with I-75, makes it easy for commuters to reach Tampa’s city limits.

Residents

Ruskin has about 3,000 households and nearly 30 percent have children under the age of 18. Over 50% of its residents are married couples and 30 percent are non-families. Over 26 percent of the population is under 18 years of age, while close to 27 percent are ages 18 to 24. Just under 50 percent of Ruskin residents are 25 and older. The median age for the community is 35 years of age.

Things to Do and See

Cockroach Bay Preserve and State Park is a 617-acre state park, south of the Little Manatee River. The park is made up of over 500 acres of mangrove swamps and attracts both fishermen and bird watchers. It also has a public boat ramp for your convenience.

Ruskin has a rich history and has several historic sites to visit, including the A. P. Dickman House and the Firehouse Cultural Center. Also, Leisey Shell Pits, located by the Little Manatee River, offers science lovers one of the world’s largest ice-age fossil deposits to explore. Ruskin also enjoys the Ruskin Family Drive-In Theatre, which has operated since 1952.

Schools

In 2014, J. Vince Thompson Elementary School was built in Ruskin and became the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) school in Hillsborough County. The campus borders Lennard High School and Hillsborough Community College’s South Shore campus.
