Keystone Park Colony incorporated much of today’s communities of Citrus Park, Cosme, Keystone, and Lake Fern.

In the 1880s, this vast, sparsely settled area began to take shape. Enough families with children existed in the area for a school to be created in 1883. The following year Keystone Park received a post office. 

An 1885 description of Keystone reveals the community’s appeal and namesake. Furthermore, it reveals that the migration of northerners to Hillsborough is not a recent phenomenon, but has been a foundation of the county’s growth since the 19th century.

Until the 1970s, much of the area remained rural, with a few families either moving in or out of the community. Yet, as Tampa grew, people moved both to the north and west of the city. Consequently, while still rural in many sections, gated communities and planned subdivisions have sprouted throughout the entire northwest section of Hillsborough County. As new schools are built and the Citrus Park Mall sprouts, development pressures will continue in the greater Keystone area.
