Built on the shores of Tampa Bay, Ruskin is a lovely, family-friendly community in Hillsborough County, Florida. It lies in the proximity of the Ruskin Inlet and the Little Manatee River and around 16 miles southeast of Tampa.

Around the period of Hernando de Soto's expedition in 1539, this district was included in the Florida chiefdom of Uzita. It was established on the shores of the Little Manatee River in 1908 by Dr. George McAnelly Miller, a professor at Ruskin College in Trenton, Missouri and an ex-prosecuting attorney in Chicago, and his wife Mrs. Adaline D. Miller. The community was named for John Ruskin, a 19th English essayist and social reformist who formed the guild of St. George. Many of the inhabitants were farmers until the 1970s when the number of suburbanites became quite substantial.


Ruskin had a total of 17,208 residents, according to the 2010 U.S. Census data. That figure represented more than twice the number of residents living there as of the 2000 census.

It is projected that more than 9,000 homes will be there by that year, compared to 5,632 housing units in 2000.
