The United States Postal Service would not recognize the name as it conflicted with a town in Hillsborough County. Instead, it was named Bonifacio. In 1890, the town name was changed to Veteran City. In 1910, the name officially changed to Gulfport.
Gulfport was a sundown town into the 1950s. An informal policy prohibited African Americans from staying within town limits after sundown.
