Pasco County
is a county located in the U.S. state of Florida. As of 2000, the population was 344,765. Its county seat is Dade City, Florida.


Pasco County was created in 1887 from the southern part of Hernando County. It was named for Samuel Pasco, who served in the Confederate Army, the state legislature and in the United States Senate from 1887 to 1899. The earliest towns were Anclote, Blanton, Dade City, Earnestville, Fort Dade, Macon (Trilby), and San Antonio. 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. The county experienced significant population growth beginning in the 1960s in the region along the Gulf coast and, more recently, in the area near Tampa.



According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 2,248 km˛ (868 mi˛). 1,929 km˛ (745 mi˛) of it is land and 319 km˛ (123 mi˛) of it (14.18%) is water.
