Lutz

The area of Lutz provides all of the conveniences of Tampa, while its residents enjoys the charm of a small town. Lutz is dotted with small family owned businesses that have created a tight-knit community throughout its evolution. Lutz’s location makes it convenient for work, shopping, sports and recreation, and the enjoyment of the area’s attractions. The current low zoning density in the Lutz area allows for fewer homes per acre. This has added to an increase in property values and limited the possibility of over development.

Lutz began with the construction of a small train depot on the Tampa Northern Railroad. The area surrounding the depot officially became known as Lutz when the U.S. Postal Service authorized a post office. The first post office was a 7-square-foot building on a lot south of the depot. George Sibthorpe, the first postmaster of Lutz, moved the post office to his realty office. In 1914, the post office was again moved to inside the train depot.

As people moved to the rural community from Tampa, the Lutz area continued to grow until it no longer depended on the "Lutz Junction", which was demolished in the late 1960s.

In 2000, a replica of the depot was rebuilt in the approximate location, which is now at the intersection of Lutz-Lake Fern Rd. and US Highway 41. The post office's structure is still in the same place today, although it is now an art gallery. A public library is located behind the train depot replica. This area is known as "Beautiful Downtown Lutz".

Part of the movie Edward Scissorhands was filmed on Tinsmith Circle in the neighborhood of Carpenter's Run in Lutz. In the credits the town is named in the "Thank you" section.
