Pioneer Environmentalist

This marker honors Capt. Nathaniel Wyche Hunter, a U.S. Army Officer who was stationed at Fort Brook during the 1830's and believed to be Tampa's first environmentalist.

Hunter recognized the natural beauty of the land around him and admonished his soldiers by stating "What sacrilege!" when they cut down the stately live oaks for firewood.

Markborough, the developer of Hunters Green, chose to name their community after Capt. Hunter because of their deep concern for the environment. This concern and careful planning led to the community's distinction as a Florida Quality Development (FQD).
