There are a number of small towns, some still identifiable (Sun City, Balm and Fort Lonesome, are three extant small communties), and some that have long since disappeared in southern Hillsborough County (Remlap, , Adamsville, Peru, and Boyette, as examples). This collection will house items from those communities as their histories are important parts of the South Hillsborough County story.
- Title: Sun City
- Abstract/Description: The small farming community of Sun City lies south of the Little Manatee River, along US 41. In the 1920's, fueled by the Great Florida Land Boom, Sun City was once planned to be a large movie colony, that some declared was to be the "Hollywood of the East".
