The Hampton Terrace Historic District, originally called the Lakewood Manor Subdivision[2], is a U.S. historic district located in Tampa, Florida. The district is roughly bounded by Hanna Avenue to the north, 15th Street to the east, Nebraska Avenue to the west, and Hillsborough Avenue to the south. Hampton Terrace Historic District was so designated by its inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places on January 27, 1999.

The Hampton Terrace district encompasses 1,150 acres (4.7 km2), and the neighborhood's boundaries are Hannah Ave, 15th St, Hillsborough Ave, and Nebraska, and also includes a small body of water called Lake Roberta, one of a few natural lakes found within the Tampa city limits. It contains 304 contributing structures, all of which are private residences. The structures are considered historically significant examples of residential styles like the bungalow, and architectural influences including American Craftsman Style.[3]

Hampton Terrace is commonly considered part of the city's Old Seminole Heights neighborhood, and is one of several distinct neighborhoods within the greater Seminole Heights section of Tampa.[4]
