The intersection of 7th Avenue and 22 Street was a sandy crossroad connecting three army encampments in the Ybor City area during the Spanish-American War. At this crossroad was located a water-trough where the Rough Riders watered their mounts. Col. "Teddy" Roosevelt frequently rode by here on his horse "Texas" followed by his little dog, "Cuba."
