History of Pasco County
Pasco County was created on June 2, 1887, from the southern third of Hernando County. The same legislation also created Citrus County from the northern third of Hernando County. According to Horgan et al. (1992), the sponsors of the bill originally proposed the name 'Banner' (which was chosen by citizens of the area), but the bill was rejected. The sponsors then changed the name to Pasco (after Samuel Pasco, who had just been elected to the United States Senate). The legislature passed the revised bill unanimously.
The earliest towns were Anclote, Blanton, Dade City, Earnestville, Fort Dade, Macon (Trilby), Lacoochee and San Antonio. Citrus was an important industry when the county was formed, although a decline followed a freeze in 1895. Several large sawmills operated in the county in the early part of the twentieth century. During the Florida land boom of the 1920s, New Port Richey became the winter home of silent screen star Thomas Meighan and golfer Gene Sarazen; Meighan attempted to bring other Hollywood figures to the city. The county has experienced significant population growth since the 1960s. The growth began along the Gulf coast but is now occurring most rapidly in areas north of Tampa.Read More
