The city of Oldsmar is a breath of fresh air in the middle of Pinellas County, the most densely county in the state of Florida. The town is named for Ransom Eli Olds, the inventor of the Oldsmobile, who bought thousands of acres and invested millions of dollars into its development. There were several name changes along the way, but eventually became known as Oldsmar. It is strategically situated between Tampa and St. Petersburg making it ripe for development. The raw essence of old Florida has been well preserved in Oldsmar where it grew slowly in the first few decades. It's population tripled in the 1980's growing faster than any other city around Tampa Bay and faster than almost any other city in the state. Its grown in its own time, with its own style, guided by people who understand how much a small town in Florida has to offer.
